Meteorologists predict a weekend full of snow and brutally cold temperatures across the Midwest and Northeast. Freezing winds and heavy snow could immobilize Chicago, Minneapolis, and Pittsburgh, where temperatures are expected to feel far below zero degrees, factoring in windchill and precipitation. Experts say roads could be too icy for travel, and airports may experience delays and cancellations until the winter storm passes. "Any schools or businesses open on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day may remain closed due to the dangerously frigid weather and travel conditions," Accuweather said of the Northeast, also predicting possible power outages during the cold snap.
