A long-lived Arctic cold outbreak will remain entrenched across the Plains, Midwest, South and East through the first week of 2018, shattering more daily records and sending wind chills to dangerously cold levels.

The latest batch of Arctic air to arrive in the Lower 48 is currently gripping parts of the Midwest, South and East. This will be followed by another reinforcing shot of bitterly cold air during the latter half of the week ahead.

Wind chills 50 to 60 degrees below zero have been recorded in the Dakotas and northern Minnesota Saturday-Monday. The coldest wind chill observed was 58 degrees below zero in Hettinger, North Dakota, on Sunday morning.

Subzero wind chills plunged all the way into parts of the mid-South Monday morning.

Sioux City, Iowa, fell to minus 24 degrees late Sunday and early Monday, marking the coldest temperature in the city since Dec. 23, 1989. That low temperature also set daily record lows for Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 in Sioux City.

Daily record lows have been set in several other Midwest and East cities during the last few days.

New Year's Day morning daily record lows include: Watertown, New York (minus 31 degrees), Des Moines, Iowa (minus 19 degrees), Moline, Illinois (minus 18 degrees), Syracuse, New York (minus 15 degrees), Buffalo, New York (minus 4 degrees) and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (minus 2 degrees).

The coldest temperature in this Arctic outbreak so far is a reading of 45 degrees below zero in Embarrass, Minnesota, on Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service has posted wind chill advisories and warnings over a widespread swath from the Plains and Midwest into the South and East.
