The wind will keep most of the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest feeling quite cold with some experiencing subzero wind chills both Saturday and Sunday.
A cold air mass of higher pressure will drive southward out of southern Canada bringing quiet, but quite cold weather to the region behind the winter storm.
