"You hear the words “polar vortex” and you know that means cold. Especially when a piece of that polar vortex gets detached and sinks into the Great Lakes and into Quebec, that means that some of the coldest air of the season is on the way," said the Network. 

The weather pattern will stretch all the way from Hudson Bay to as far south as the Gulf of Mexico.
