The coldest weather of the season so far will extend from the Dakotas to Texas and the Interstate-95 corridor by the end of the week. The outbreak of arctic air will be long-lasting and may linger well past the middle of the month.
Heating demands will jump and people will be reaching for winter coats before venturing outdoors.
The worst of the cold will be felt from Fargo, North Dakota, and Minneapolis to Chicago and St. Louis.
The combination of cold air, wind and other conditions, including snow in part of the Midwest and northern Plains, will send AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures plunging into the single digits and teens. Actual high temperatures may not reach the freezing mark in portions of the northern Plains and Midwest. Such cold will raise the risk of hypothermia and frostbite for those not properly dressed.
The mild fall temperatures are expected to end on Sunday. Bundling up when going outside for even short periods of time and being prepared to combat hypothermia and frostbite when going into the woods to hunt, chop wood, or ride horses is being highly recommended. A first aid or survival kit kept in vehicles in case of an accident or being stuck on the road due during winter storms is also highly advisable.

Yet there are still people who say that the world is getting warmer. Maybe it is...it's called Climate Change and it really has nothing to do with politics, or mankind. It is just the way it is...nature. Can't legislate that.

Good deal. Maybe this cold will stop some the impending violence in Fergunson?
As for me, I'll be bundled up in my deer stand. Bring on the chilly weather!

I was in Afghanistan for the last one sweating my butt off...
I was actually glad to be there for that. This is going to suck. My area get seriously cold in the winter anyway. This is going to make it much worse.
