The Latest: Subzero temps set records; warmer weather ahead

CHICAGO (AP) — The Latest on bitter cold weather in the Midwest. (all times local): 1:30 p.m….Record low temperatures have been recorded in cities across South Dakota, northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota, while a blizzard shut down Interstate 90 in parts of Montana.

The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, says the city of Huron set a new low for Sunday’s date in that location of minus 31 degrees. Another record fell in Marshall, Minnesota, where it was 31 below zero. Spencer, Iowa’s negative 27 degrees was a record-breaker there.

Extreme cold is forecast for the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and New England. The weather service says the Gulf Coast region will have below normal temperatures for a few days. But a warming trend is expected to start early in the week in many spots as a quieter weather pattern begins with much less precipitation nationwide compared with recent days.

Dangerous cold in Nebraska, Iowa Sunday before warmer week

December 18th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Dangerous cold conditions are lingering across Iowa and Nebraska, but forecasters predict that warmer temperatures will arrive this week. The National Weather Service has issued wind chill warnings and advisories across most of both states Sunday because of the cold.

The subzero temperatures are combining with wind to create wind chills of 20-below to 40-below zero across the two states. So forecasters are encouraging people to stay inside or minimize any exposure to the cold. But some relief is in the forecast. Temperatures are expected to warm into the 20s and 30s beginning Monday.
