Arctic air arrives Saturday night

Sunday's temperatures go from the lower 50s in the afternoon, to the lower 30s Monday morning.

Some parts of the north central United States could see temperatures an astonishing 22 to 28 degrees (40-50F) colder than normal this weekend.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny and "warmer" highs in the upper 30s to around 40° return. New Year's Day will be cold in the low 20s but because it will be breezy it will feel like the single digits most of the day. Lows Saturday night should slip into the upper teens.

On Saturday and Sunday, Minneapolis is forecast to have highs of only about minus-20 degrees (minus-5F), with lows near minus-25 degrees (minus-15F). Temperatures will drop into the lower 20s with wind chills in the teens.

Forecasters said the temperature in the city was likely to dip under -12C, well below the typical average low for the day.

Rest of the week: Sub-freezing temperatures will stay in place for Tuesday with highs in the middle to upper 20s. Expect the chance of a flurry in the eastern half of the Big Country Sunday. It will remain very cold, with a chance of afternoon snow showers and flurries. As we ring in 2018, temperatures will be near 0, dropping as low as 7 below zero by Monday morning. Even though we will be tracking more clouds than sun, a light southwest breeze will boost temperatures into the mid-40s.

Arctic invasion continues with even more cold on the way

Once this Arctic front pushes through, we will have much colder temperatures.

If the cold temperatures have you feeling a little glum, it's good to keep it in perspective.

Expect the cold weather to carry into this evening and overnight.

Highs are only expected to reach minus-9-to-minus-12 degrees (10 -15F) in Boston, about minus-7 degrees (20F) in NY and minus-3 degrees (25F) in Washington.

By late Sunday, the system has generally moved out of our area. that will leave your New Years Eve plans dry, but also very cold!
