Michigan is going to be slammed with some of the coldest weather we've had in years.

The dreaded Polar Vortex is poised to park over Michigan mid to late next week, and it will bring dangerously cold temperatures with it. Don't get me wrong, the current cold snap that we've been in is no joke. If the weather man is right about this upcoming arctic blast though, we will see some record setting lows.

ABC12 posted the following image of the American Weather Model, predicting some of the arctic temps on the way.

The strong wind gusts mixed with the freezing air will keep daytime temps below zero. The daytime wind chills will be in the -20 range, while the night time wind chills could be as low as -40!

I feel like I shouldn't have to say this, but these are not safe conditions to be outside in for any living thing. Bring your pets inside.

So when is all this cold weather going to hit?

According to most weather maps, we will have a cold weekend. Temps will be in the teens until Monday, when we get 5 TO 8 INCHES OF SNOW DUMPED ON US!

The maps show the Polar Vortex coming in either Wednesday or Thursday and lasting until Saturday. Then we can get back to the 20's, which will seem like a heatwave.

In the meantime, I'll just be over here like. . .
