Baby, It's Cold Outside: All 50 States Hit 32 Degrees
You probably noticed: It's really cold outside. But it's not just you.
Yep. Even Hawaii, where Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano reaching 13,800 feet above sea level, was below freezing.
This map from the National Weather Service's Twin Cities office shows you that:
Weather.com reports that western New York has been especially hard hit. Some parts of it have gotten up to 4 feet of snow and when it's all over some could see up to 6 feet of new snow.
"A state of emergency was declared in Erie County, New York Tuesday morning, banning all travel except for emergency vehicles. A 13-mile section of the New York State Thruway (Interstate 90) was closed from the east side of Buffalo southward. To avoid traffic backups, a 37-mile stretch of the Niagara Thruway (Interstate 190) southbound from Niagara Falls to the Interstate-90 interchange was also shutdown Tuesday morning."
