  • Wind, frigid temps early to mid-week

Now comes the arrival of brutal and potentially record breaking cold. Thursday and Friday will be brutally cold with lows in the single digits and wind chills around -15 degrees.

Temperatures will recover to closer to average for this time of year by Friday, with even milder conditions expected this weekend, when highs and lows will be above average.

The Weather Service is calling for 6 to 12 inches of total snow accumulations.

Blizzard conditions are predicted across parts of the western Ohio Valley and snow is expected Tuesday through Wednesday from the Great Lakes region into New England, the weather service said. Temperatures will be above freezing during the time it should be raining, so frozen precipitation is not expected.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said she is in touch with National Football League officials and will work with them regarding events scheduled across the city as winter weather moves into the area.

The city's Monday afternoon temperatures will stay in the low-20s before dipping back to zero degrees at night, the NWS said.

In east central Minnesota and west central Minnesota, windchills could fall as low as 55 degrees below zero. These are the coldest wind chill values expected over the next several days.

Expect flurries and flakes to continue through part of Tuesday but the travel conditions should improve by the middle of the day on Tuesday.
