BATON ROUGE- A blast of arctic air headed this way is set to bring low temperatures to this area we haven't seen in decades.  The low tonight could dip down to 27 degrees, and on Monday night it's forecast to drop to 18 degrees.

Across the nation, frigid, subzero temperatures were expected to roll in Sunday afternoon, evening and into Monday across a wide swath of the United States. Some residents in Midwestern states were digging out from nearly a foot of snow Sunday afternoon, and grocery stores were selling out of essentials.

Hazardous travel conditions led to canceled flights and prompted warnings from transportation officials that only those who absolutely need to venture out should do so.

On WBRZ News 2 at 10pm, we'll show you how residents in our area are gearing up for the bone chilling cold.
