Oh, baby, if you think it’s cold now, wait until you see what the “polar vortex” has in store.

After about 17 inches of snow, Fenton can expect to see even colder temperatures – weather experts call it a “polar vortex,” but you can call it “hurts-to-the-bone cold” – as Winter Storm Hercules continues to batter Michigan.

Here’s what you can expect in the days ahead:

Monday afternoon: Snow showers continue with a high near 10, but a west wind 17-22 mph increasing to 23-28 mph will make it feel as cold as -18. Another two inches of snow is possible.

Monday night: Snow showers will continue, with a low around -9 and wind chill values as low as -30. Another inch of snow is possible.

Tuesday: More snow showers, mainly before 9 a.m, then mostly cloudy and cold with a high of only 2 and wind chill values as low as -33.

Tuesday night: A chance of snow showers before 8 p.m., mostly cloudy with a low around -3 and wind chill values as low as -24.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 14 and a west southwest wind around 9 mph.

Wednesday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around -2.

Temperatures in the 20s and 30s and overnight lows in the teens and 20s are expected to return to the area by Thursday.
