    Chilly Blast to Bring Frost and Freeze Conditions to Midwest, Northeast
    Sarah Eloise
    Sarah Eloise of Gaylord, Michigan, awoke to snow on the ground on October 17, 2015. A cold air mass is expected to bring the first snowflakes and snowfall of the season, as well as the first freeze in parts of the Great Lakes and Northeast this weekend.

    Millions of Americans woke to chilly temperatures Saturday, and many could see snow before the weekend is over, NBC News reported.

    The Weather Channel reports the coldest air mass of the season has descended on the nation's Midwest and Northeast, plunging temperatures into the 30s — and even high 20s in some areas. 

    Freeze watches and frost warnings stretch from Iowa south to Mississippi and east through New England, with lows Saturday night into Sunday expected to sink to freezing or below.
