Polar vortex follows winter storm
A stubborn arctic air mass will persist across much of the U.S. east of the Rockies through this week with afternoon temperatures expected to be as much as 20 to 25 degrees below normal by the end of the week from the Midwest to the entire Eastern Seaboard.
Furthermore, the storm could rank as the most intense in decades over the waters east of New England at this time of year.
