Winter’s bitter bite will continue to sink its teeth into large swaths of the country Tuesday with temperatures remaining up to 30 degrees below average, forecasters said.
“This is going to be another cold week,” The Weather Channel’s Kevin Roth said. “Tuesday will see temperatures drop between 10 to 30 degrees below average for much of the Midwest and Northeast, so most areas will be freezing or colder."
The coldest air will be reserved for the northern Plains to the Great Lakes, where highs will be in the single digits and teens, according to the National Weather Service.
Overnight and into Wednesday, cities from Washington, D.C., to New York could see one or two inches of snow, Roth added.
Meanwhile, a couple of heavy storms will this week dump much-needed rain on parched California.
