The jet stream hunkered to the south Wednesday, promising to bring nearly a week of temperatures that could drop to 20-below or worse in the northern midsection of the country, and forcing much of the rest of the nation to deal with unexpectedly frigid temperatures.

In New Mexico, forecasters predicted temperatures would dip into the mid-20s overnight in Santa Fe County, with the possibility of an inch or two of snow in some areas by morning. Thursday’s forecast called for a 40 percent chance of snow and a high temperature just below freezing. Overnight temperatures in Santa Fe County were expected to plummet into the teens through the weekend.
