Heavy snow and life-threatening subzero temperatures are set to strike the U.S. Midwest and Northeast this week as a polar vortex is forecast to bring a dangerous cold outbreak that could kill within minutes.

Forecasters are warning that the dangerously cold weather will closely follow the blizzard-like conditions that are currently slamming parts of the Midwest.

The plunging temperatures expected from Tuesday have forecasters especially concerned with the National Weather Service calling them ‘possibly life threatening’.

Wind chills could dip to negative 55 degrees in northern Illinois.

In Minnesota, temperatures on Wednesday could fall to 30 degrees below zero but feel as cold as 60 below because of the wind chill.

Similar weather is expected in Wisconsin.

The polar vortex – the frigid winds that circulate around the North Pole – is expected to extend from the Dakotas through New England.

‘If you live up in the Arctic Circle, you’d say this is pretty normal. When it’s actually brought down to this level, that’s when you know it’s something serious,’ weather service meteorologist Brian Hurley said.

The weather, which is expected to be the coldest in years, will put millions at risk of hypothermia and frostbite within minutes, AccuWeather reports.

Meteorologists have warned that the cold will be life-threatening for those without an adequate way to stay warm.
