Transcript for Deep freeze hits the Midwest, targets the Northeast
A lot more coming up.

Good morning, Linzie. Reporter: Good morning, Michael. Winter's first big freeze is here in the midwest and headed towards the northeast here in Minneapolis, the snow flurries in the air. The thermometer says 0 but feels like 6 and feels like tomorrow will drop to zero. My hands are already in pain. There are winter storm warnings in effect across the midwest today. Some areas could see up to a foot of lake-effect snow. Cold and getting colder. Brace yourselves. Michael. I'm braced. I don't care how much you think you're ready for it, you never are ready for it.
