Arctic Blast Brings Coldest Temperatures in 20 Years

Chicago public schools canceled Monday classes due to the cold, windy conditions.
CHICAGO -- Chicago public schools canceled Monday classes due to the cold, windy conditions. As polar temperatures sweep much of the United States reports millions of Americans are preparing for the coldest weather they've experienced in nearly 20 years.

An arctic blast will drop temperatures to zero or lower across nearly half the nation by Wednesday. As many as 140-million Americans will feel the effects. Forecast for Monday: colder weather in Nashville, Tennessee, and Atlanta, Georgia, than in Anchorage, Alaska.

The National Weather Service says much of the United States will see the coldest temperatures in almost 20 years -- as much as 50 degrees below average in some cities. That could mean a new record-low in Embarrass, Minnesota.

The current record, set in 1996: 64 degrees below zero.
