A lobe of the polar vortex will rear its ugly head, drawing Arctic air into the United States this weekend. Temperatures will run 25 to 40 degrees below normal for this time of year on Saturday and Sunday from the Northeast into the Mid-Atlantic. Highs will not climb above zero in some locations, and lows will plummet to minus-20.
