Bitter cold expected until New Year in Midwest and Northeast

By Tuesday morning, Erie International Airport had accumulated 53 inches of snow since Christmas Eve.

Snow is continuing to fall in some areas of the United States after record-breaking accumulations on Christmas Day.

In the West, low-elevation snow will create hazardous travel conditions in western Washington state and OR, the National Weather Service said.

Erie, Pennsylvania broke a one-day snowfall record with 34 inches of snow on Christmas Day.

Erie's 92 inches of snow this December make this the snowiest single month on record there.The previous record, from December 1989, was 66.9 inches. State police said drivers should avoid travel. And in nearby Lake County, Ohio, speeds were reduced to 30 miles per hour on parts of Interstate 90.

The National Weather Service has continued a warning for lake-effect snow from OH to Pennsylvania and into western NY.

It's a welcome site for snow-lovers in a season short on the white stuff - just over 2 inches (5 centimeters) previously in Chicago, Castro said.

Christmas 2017 was the coldest since 2008 when temperatures dropped to zero.

Chicago and Minneapolis both had their coldest Christmas since 1996, while Duluth, Minnesota, had its chilliest December 25 since 1933. Expect another 4 to 8 inches of snow from tonight through Wednesday evening with locally higher amounts possible.

This photo was snapped today in Duluth, Minnesota, where temperatures fell to minus-21 degrees with a wind chill of minus-44.

The good news for many in the Northeast and Midwest was that it has been a white Christmas.

States from Montana and the Dakotas to Wisconsin expected wind chill temperatures in places at 40 below zero (40 below Celsius), the National Weather Service said.

On Tuesday, as many clear off their cars to head back into work after the Christmas holiday, wind will drive the cold temperatures into the teens. The National Weather Service warned that those whose skin was exposed in such conditions could get frostbite in as little as 15 minutes.
