Caused by what meteorologists are describing as a perfect jet stream rotation with cold, dense air following a natural pattern, and forcing this chilly, glacial air deep into the nation and affecting temperatures as far south as the gulf coast.

Any outdoor activity should be limited and met with precaution.

Sunday’s NFL Playoff game at Lambeau Field with Green Bay hosting the San Francisco 49ers will see game temperatures tumble from minus 2 at kickoff to minus 7 by the fourth quarter with wind chills making it feel like 30 below.
