Consider Fridays big chill a mere warm-up act: This weekend will bring a deep freeze that could prove fatal for the ill-equipped. As a new storm whips across the Midwest on Sunday into Monday, states such as Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin will see lows in the minus teens and minus 20s. And with sub-zero winds whipping through some areas, it could feel more like the minus 50s and minus 60s, meteorologists warn. “Its the mother lode of cold air,” Weather Channel coordinating meteorologist Tom Moore said. “On the heels of what will be the coldest air of the season, will be dangerous, life-threatening winds.” "One of the coldest arctic air masses in nearly 30 years" was likely to hit the Plains and Midwest this weekend. Some all-time cold records appeared to be in jeopardy, Weather Channel forecasters said.
