Transcript for The Winter That Just Won't Quit and Possibly the Coldest Super Bowl in History
Lot of people are also monitoring super bowl weather. Just how cold will it be? Also tonight, a new storm is on the move and ABC's Alex Perez has the winter that will not quit. Reporter: Another winter pounding of snow and ice. Parts of Colorado getting more than two feet of new snow. This storm, the latest in a January that just won't quit. From the midwest to new England, nearly two dozen states could see snow, sleet and freezing rain. So far this year, winter relentless. Never ending, blinding snow in the midwest. In New York, the thermometer earlier this month plunged 51 degrees in 24 hours. And paralyzing, freezing ice. Cancelling more flights this month than all of last winter. Creating thousands of car accidents and leading to that epic traffic nightmare in Atlanta. Today, that city finally back on its feet. There are new winter worries. Here in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and many other areas are now coping with a shortage of this stuff. Road salt. Some communities have already burned through twice as much salt as they usually do all season. And now, all eyes on mother nature and that super bowl, the first ever to be played in a cold climate. But will this be the coldest super bowl ever? The 1972 matchup in New Orleans holds the record. Cowboys/dolphins saw 39 degrees at kickoff. This Sunday that super bowl record should be sacked. Alex Perez, ABC news, Chicago. And for the latest on this new storm and the answer to the super bowl forecast, let's bring in ABC meteorologist ginger zee. Ginger? Diane, here we are on super bowl boulevard. What an exciting time for new York City and New Jersey. We got to talk about the headlines about that super bowl game in a moment. But first, the big snowstorm. Chicago, Detroit, parts of Iowa all on alert this weekend, some places will pick more than a half-foot of snow and here's that forecast, right zooming in on east Rutherford, New Jersey, some spotty showers, we'll be watching that most of the game, it should be dry. It will feel like the 20s, but, again the, this could have been so much worse. This will rival or flirt with the coldest ever in New Orleans, like Alex talked about, I but I don't think it's going happen. I think it's going be warmer than that. Thank you, ginger
