Lehigh Valley winter weather advisory: 3-6 inches of snow Tuesday

'Dangerous' and 'brutal' cold aimed at Upper Midwest and Great Lakes

Average delays at both airports were lasting less than 15 minutes.

School districts in Minnesota and Wisconsin canceled classes and government offices, universities and businesses shuttered, with the mercury expected to drop to a polar -40 Fahrenheit (-40 Celsius).

Check out more weather maps and forecast models. Wind chills could dip to negative 55 degrees in northern IL, which the National Weather Service calls "possibly life threatening". Look for snow to be on and off, but still with some heavier bursts through the day. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is encouraging motorists to stay off the roads.

Temperatures are forecast to inch up to a daytime high of about minus 14 on Wednesday - the first subzero high temperature in five years and the coldest winter high ever recorded in Chicago - before dipping, again, to about minus 21 overnight.

"With the cold will also come wintry weather", said Dombeck, who added that New York City could see a coating to an inch of snow Tuesday night.

But Monday's snow is just a precursor to what's in store for IL starting Tuesday.

Extreme wind chills are also expected: west to northwest winds of 10-20 miles per hour will blow during the coldest period, resulting in unsafe wind chills below minus 40 degrees to portions of 12 states.

In Wisconsin, plow drivers were having a hard time keeping up with the snow in Sheboygan.

The cold air is riding behind an Arctic front that brought several inches of snow to the same region over the weekend. Snow is even expected to reach down all the way to MS and Alabama.

Eleven major airlines, including American, Delta, United and Southwest, have issued travel warnings for multiple airports throughout the USA affected by the polar vortex, allowing travelers to change their trips with no fee if their flight plans are affected "by severe weather or other uncontrollable events".

In eastern North Dakota, officials have issued travel alerts because of blowing snow.

Frigid temperatures were already affecting parts of northern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin. The Dakotas are grappling with blizzard conditions, the National Weather Service said.
