It is expected that there will be a record-breaking cold front in the United States from Sunday to Tuesday, with cold temperatures reaching as far south as the Gulf Coast.
The National Weather Service forecasts more than 170 potential record highs from Monday to Wednesday.
Record lows were expected in the northeast on Saturday, with Baltimore, Newark and Philadelphia all bottoming out in the mid-20s. More were expected on Tuesday in the South and Midwest, when parts of Texas could sink to 1
Where does the explosion of the Arctic hit?
The front will descend from the Arctic through the northern plains and the upper Midwest on Sunday, when temperatures in some areas could be 20 to 30 degrees below normal, the Weather Channel said. The cold will pour into the southern plains and Ohio Valley on Monday, then through most of the east coast and deep south by Tuesday.
High temperatures on Monday can get stuck with teenagers and 20-year-olds in the Midwest and the Great Lakes. According to Weather Channel, it could be the coldest veteran's day ever recorded in cities like Chicago and Minneapolis.
Until Tuesday, cold is possible in the northeast, the Ohio Valley and parts of the south. Highs can only be reached in the 30s to Alabama.
For some farmers in the US, freezing the early season could pose a threat to the crop.
Does the Arctic explosion bring snow?
Snow showers According to the National Weather Service
over the weekend in northern Michigan, the northern plains, the northern Rocky Mountains and the Cascades Bundle for Veterans Day
In Detroit, where already the 14th Issue of Veterans Day Parade takes place on Sunday, celebrations should just escape the snow. The city could reach between 1 and 3 inches on Monday, according to the Weather Channel.
Leavenworth County, Kansas, the nation's oldest veteran's day, is expected to have high temperatures of 32 degrees on Monday. This year, the district's 100th Parade takes place, and the organizers say the show continues despite the cold.
"We will and have never canceled a parade due to weather issues, bearing in mind that there was no war or conflict in Chicago, where the city has scheduled a Veterans Day ceremony on Monday morning at Soldier Field, temperatures of up to expected to reach 31 degrees, and forecasters say an inch ahead of snow, according to the National Weather Service.
While Chicago's double-digit temperatures may be mild, cold fronts could be more vulnerable to homelessness at the start of the season for more than 80,000 Chicago residents.
"This type of weather conditions, which are so early in the season, make their life much more difficult," said Doug Schenkelberg, director of advocacy for the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.
