SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

It seems like we've had round after round of cold spells this winter.

This week will bring yet another stretch of bitterly cold weather,as several disturbances move through and bring us some familiar Arctic air.

We are already starting off the work week with below average temperatures. Average for this time of the year is in the mid-30s, but many will struggle to even make it to 20 degrees for Monday. 

With a breeze at 10 to 20 mph, the air will feel colder on your skin. Wind chill values are going to remain in the single digits today.

Not much will change for Tuesday and highs will once again struggle to reach the low 20s, but an arctic cold front Tuesday night will bring even colder air to Mid-Michigan. Because of the arctic air behind this front, Tuesday night low temps will drop close to 0.

A couple more waves will move through later this week,allowing the bitterly cold air to continue to stream in from the northwest.

This means we will keep the frigid weather around through the weekend, with overnight lows dipping below zero. High temps will be running 20-30° below the seasonal average during much of this time frame.

For now, it looks like we will stay on the cold side through the first week of March. To see just how cold, click here to visit our weather section.
