GRAND RAPIDS  (WKZO) --We haven's seen a winter storm like this in years and it may be one to remember.

It will definitely be the coldest its been in years, maybe ever.

Meteorologist Mark Sekelsky at the national Weather Service in Grand Rapids says Kalamazoo and Battle Creek and the border counties are actually going to see colder temperatures than most of the rest of the southern Peninsula because we won’t have the Lake Effect working for us.

He says the net result may be one for the record books. He says we can expect to see wind chill factors as low as 20 to 30 below sometime over the next two days.


Millions across the upper Midwest are waking up this morning to bone-chilling temperatures that'll likely stick around for at least a couple more days. Meteorologist Rob St. Pierre says it's dropping temperatures down to their lowest levels in decades.

And you can be sure as bad as it is in Southwest Michigan, its always worse somewhere else.Minnesota, the Dakotas and parts of Wisconsin will sink to 60-below wind chills.

By mid-week, an estimated 140 million people will find themselves freezing in temperatures no higher than zero.
