About 250 million people will face below-freezing temperatures this week.
But this isn’t just a typical January cold snap.
These are some of the coldest temperatures we’ve seen in a generation.
Wind chills of 50 below are possible in parts of the Midwest where a winter storm is blamed for at least three deaths.
As of now, parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin are already under more than a foot of snow.
More than 3,400 hundred flights have been cancelled in two days because of the winter storm.
Delta Airlines is issuing travel waivers, allowing customers traveling to, from or through specific cities to make a one-time change to their plans without a fee.
The winter storm is expected to bring a couple of inches of snow to Atlanta where thousands of visitors are in town for Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Crews are already treating roads and say everything should be clear on game day.
