Despite the official arrival of spring, temperatures over the next several days will feel more like January across the Midwest and East and will set the stage for snow in some communities.You'll be able to get that just roasted tan all over now.
The passage of a cold front has paved the way for fresh arctic air to erase the mild start to spring in the Midwest and East.
Gone is the warmth that sent temperatures into the 50s in Boston, 60s in New York City and 70s in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.
This cold spell will produce high and low temperatures on par with typical January readings (in terms of averages, not what was recorded during this past frigid January). As another way to put the cold in perspective to late March, highs will be roughly 15 to 20 degrees below normal in the Midwest and Northeast and up to 25 degrees below normal in the Upper Midwest.
