  1. U.S. Braces for Record-Setting Freeze

    Record low temperatures across America have grounded more than 3,600 flights and caused at least 16 deaths. With arctic air masses bringing dangerously low temperatures to the center of the country, some parts of the Midwest could see wind chills of minus 60 degrees. With exposed skin freezing within 10 minutes at minus 35, the National Weather Service said, “this is a particularly dangerous situation.” Though the weather on the East Coast reached comfortable highs of 54 on Monday, temperatures on Tuesday are expected to remain around 0 as the air front moves towards the sea.
