Winterlike temperatures that pushed into the northern Plains through the middle of this week will continue charging south and east into the weekend.
The first push of cold air arrived in the northern Plains on Wednesday into Wednesday night. Temperatures dropped into the single digits from Montana to the Dakotas and into northern Iowa throughout Wednesday night.
Cold continued to infiltrate the the country, spreading through the middle Mississippi River Valley and the Midwest.

"The low temperature could plunge to 25 F in Philadelphia on Saturday morning. It hasn't been this cold so early in the season there since 1976," Jesse Ferrell, AccuWeather meteorologist and social media manager, said.
A stiff northwesterly wind will keep AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures as much as 15 degrees F lower than the actual temperature reading across much of the region.
Normal high temperatures for the beginning of November range from the lower 40s F in northern Maine to the lower 60s F in the mid-Atlantic.

I thought she needed a non-carbon ride back home across the ocean to wherever she is from.
Can't we move on to the next Loonie Toon liberal?
I think that’s a function of the fact that something like 8 out of every 10 meteorologists currently walking the planet is an alumnus of Penn State University.
Not good because State College, PA is a hotbed of extreme whacko climate activism.
The experts will tell you what to think, citizen. :-(
(If you disagree you will be declared a “hater” and banned on google, Facebook, Youtube, and you can be fired from your job.)
“But is the record cold man-made? If so, how?”
I suspect every teenager in the south has left the door open with the air-conditioning on. (That’s how my dad would have explained it.)
The last time the Chinese all jumped at the same time it caused an ice age.
I think 76 was the year of the monster storm on the east coast. I remember 2-3 feet of snow and no power for a week.
“You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows” - you can check it here and see where your weather’s gonna come from:
High Plains, Tulsa OK, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas.
Man that is one warped girl. Her parents need some Harry Reid exercise equipment.
Any “warmer” and she can walk from the US, Alaska, Russia to Finland and home.
NOT Heidi. Re-greta-bull.
“The fall and winter of 1976-77 was one of the worst I can remember! Proof of THE COMING ICE AGE! The cold began with one of the coldest Thanksgivings here ever, and January, the Continental US had complete cloud cover all that month with several really bad snow storms.”
I lived in the country with another guy that winter. He had a very well set up 4X4 truck. It was a terrible night and no sane people would have gone joy riding, however we’re talking two testosterone and alcohol fueled young men. Shortly after taking off we saw some taillights down a back road at a bad angle. Someone in the ditch. It ended up being someone from out of the area who had gotten hopelessly lost. He had a light jacket and was almost out of gas. We took him to his relatives house. It got to nearly ten below that night with high winds. On the way home Jim turned to me and said “Did we save that guy’s life?” I said that we probably did. It kind of shook us both up. We had no idea that it would happen when we headed out.
It will get all the way down to about 70 degrees here in about 2 weeks. (central CA)
I’m avoiding Guam.
Was it a MF Ski Whiz?
I read about them in a book.
Christmas ‘83. HUGE arctic blast.
Reagan’s second inaugural, same thing.
Had to be moved indoors.
This just happens from time to time.
