he Midwest and Northeast are experiencing bitterly cold temperatures with sub-zero arctic air and dangerously cold wind chills that are expected to continue for the next several days putting New Year’s celebrations on ice.

With the final days of 2017 underway, forecasters are warning of frigid temperatures that could cause frostbite with as little as 30 minutes of exposure outside in the two regions.

The brutal cold front is currently clobbering several states with many of the temperatures only reaching a high in the 20s and lows in the single digits well below the freezing point.

Wind chill advisories or warnings are in effect for all of North Dakota and Wisconsin, as well as swaths of South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan and Indiana.

In addition, wind chill advisories are also in effect for parts of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and New York.

A small jet slid off the runway at Michigan City Municipal Airport in Indiana early Wednesday morning. Authorities say the pilot and co-pilot were the only people on-board the plane at the time of the incident, WSBT reported. No injuries were reported.

Up to one million revelers are expected to gather in New York City’s Times Square on Saturday night to celebrate. Forecasters predict the temperature to be around 12 degrees in the evening, however, it will feel dramatically colder due to the wind chill.
