MILWAUKEE (KTTC/AP) -- The polar vortex that gripped much of the country is gone, but don't get too comfortable -- another round of frigid air is expected to arrive next week across Minnesota and the northern U.S., from the Dakotas eastward to New England.
It'll be cold, but not the life-threatening cold of last week, when subzero temperatures enveloped much of the country and contributed to at least a dozen deaths.
The KTTC Precision Weather Team says we'll see highs in the low 30s Sunday, but falling early next week into the single digits-- highs Tuesday could be only around 3 above zero.
Bob McMahon of the National Weather Service echoes that thought, and says temperatures will start falling over the weekend into Monday. He says highs in parts of the Dakotas, Wisconsin and Michigan, will be in the single digits above or below zero.
The cold air will then move eastward into New England, where temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler than normal through next weekend.
