Because of the cold and snow, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter StormWarning and Winter Weather Advisory for snow in parts of the Great Lakes and a Freeze Watch from North Carolina to CT for the record cold. Martinsville should see a low of 25 Friday night and 28 Saturday night. Now a chunk of that cold is expected to break loose and filter into the Great Lakes late Thursday through Saturday. Residents are encouraged to take steps to protect sensitive plants from the cold conditions. "The coldest spots may fall into the upper teens".

Snow will begin late this afternoon near Wenatchee and on the Waterville Plateau and spread north into the Okanogan Valley this evening.

Friday temperatures in the Midwest for November 10, 2017.

At Baltimore-Washington International Airport, the record low is 21 from 1973. The cold front will also drastically drop temperatures across the region.

Coldest low temperatures in Washington (downtown Washington 1872-1945, and Reagan National Airport 1945 to present) between October 15 and November 11. Roads may become slick in places due to these pockets early in the day when temperatures are at or below freezing.
