Street crews dug out snow clogged roads across the US northeast on Friday after a powerful blizzard as temperatures plunged during a brutal cold spell. Extreme cold will reach from New England to the Midwest and down to the Carolinas, forecasters warned. Temperatures were expected to be 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit below average across the northeastern US for the next many days.
From Baltimore to Caribou, workers battled to clear snow and ice as wind chills were forecast to fall as low as -40 degrees Celsius in some areas after sundown. Ice floats were seen along the Hudson river in New Jersey on Saturday.
