In fact, some parts of the South could see record-breaking lows.
What else is expected this week?
Despite the sudden onset of this cold front, it’s anticipated to be fleeting.
It may seem like an early winter has descended upon these eastern states, but there’s a silver lining — warmer temperatures are forecasted to return soon.

This warming is expected to persist in most areas throughout the weekend, indicating that the spell of severe weather might be brief.
