January frosts in November: weather forecasters told which states to prepare for record cold weather
A large portion of the United States is gearing up for the start of the cold winter season, which could break records from New Mexico to New Jersey and bring more snow to parts of Michigan. Already on Monday it was so cold and slippery that at the Chicago O'Hare airport the plane left the runway.
“At present, 148 weather records are forecasted - it is about reaching a temperature of 1 degrees (almost -18 Celsius) or falling below this mark between Tuesday and Thursday this week,” the National Weather Forecast Center wrote on Sunday, quoted USA Today.
Record lows are expected in the South and Midwest on Tuesday, November 12, in some areas of Texas temperatures can drop to 16 degrees (-9 C). It is predicted that in some cities in Texas and Louisiana, temperatures will reach a minimum of 40 degrees (4 C), which will break long-term records.
AccuWeather senior meteorologist Dan Pidinowski said that despite the middle of November on the calendar, temperatures will more likely resemble mid-January, spreading over most of the country, starting Monday, November 11, in the Upper Midwest and slowly gliding south and east.
“Monday will be the worst in the Upper Midwest, Wisconsin-Dakota,” Pidinowski said. “Maximums up to 20 degrees (-7 C), minimums up to single digits.”

Airlines at Chicago's O'Hara and Midway airports canceled hundreds of flights due to snowfall in the region, creating difficult travel conditions. According to officials, near 8: 00, immediately after landing at O'Hare International Airport, the plane slid off the runway.
A video of one of the passengers shows how the plane turns left, and then leaves the runway and falls into the snow.

An American Airlines spokesman told Fox News that Envoy Air’s American Eagle 4125 flight slid off the runway after landing at O'Hara — it flew from Greensboro, North Carolina. According to a company representative, everything happened "because of ice conditions."
“No injuries were reported,” the spokesman said. “All 38 passengers and 3 crew members were removed from the aircraft and are now safely back at the terminal.”
An airport spokesman told Fox News that the incident had a “moderate impact” on all operations taking place at the airport.
According to forecasts by the Weather Service in Markett, Michigan, in some parts of Michigan on Monday it can fall up to 1 feet (more than 30 cm) of snow.
“Please note that a few more inches are expected during the day and in the evening on Monday, as well as on Tuesday,” the weather service said.
