Drifting snow obscures a road near Mount Joy in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday, January 30. A bitter deep freeze is moving into the Northeast from the Midwest, sending temperatures plummeting and making road conditions dangerous.

Extremely cold temperatures were spreading across the United States this week as a mammoth blast of frigid air sweeps through the Midwest and heads toward the East.

More than 83 million Americans — about 25% of the US population — will suffer sub-zero temperatures sometime between Wednesday and Monday.
