Arctic air heads to northern New England, parts of New York
NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. - Arctic air is returning to northern New England and parts of New York State after Sunday's brief sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures.
The National Weather Service says temperatures will be 25 to 30 degrees below normal across much of the country on Monday. And anything from rain to sleet to snow is possible in many areas.
Forecasters say winds throughout the region anytime from Monday afternoon into the night could cause temperatures in Bennington, Vermont, to drop to minus 17 degrees. Lake Placid, New York, could be a teeth-chattering minus 30 degrees.
And the Great Lakes are going the way of the Niagara Falls and Sioux Falls: they're freezing over. The New York Daily News reports that Lake Erie is nearly totally frozen, and lakes Huron and Superior are nearly 80 percent frozen.
