North - Bitter cold temperatures will move from the Midwest on Friday into the Northeast on Saturday. From Ohio to Maine, expect cold, late-week temperatures.
South - Texas had bouts of heavy rain over the weekend, with parts seeing as much as 8 to 10 inches of rainfall. There will be a flood warning remaining for the river in Evadale, Texas until this Wednesday. Water from Lake Sam Rayburn flooded the bridge on Highway 147 on Saturday, which created dangerous road conditions with the leftover debris. Wind damage around these areas also added to debris, creating tough driving conditions.
Midwest - The Midwest will once again experience bitter cold temperatures. On Friday morning, most of the Midwest will have temperatures that are 20 to 35 degrees colder than average for January. Milwaukee and Chicago may have their first subzero temperatures this season on Friday.
West - A blizzard warning is issued for the central high Plains from Kansas to Colorado. Expect to experience snow from Kansas to North Dakota. This morning, there was reported zero visibility snow in Kit Carson County, Colorado. The Colorado DOT shut down a part of Interstate 70, which is East of the Denver International Airport.
