2nd coldest blast of Arctic air this winter to shock central US, revive winter in East
A blast of Arctic air, second in magnitude only to that of late January, will extend from the northern Plains through the rest of the central United States on Friday and spill over into the East during Friday night.
Overall, temperatures will be 15-25 degrees Fahrenheit higher in the core of this blast compared to the blast from late January. However, this dose of Arctic air will still pack a punch, cause some pain and create dangerous and even life-threatening conditions for a time. Like the last big blast, the worst conditions will be over the North Central states.
