VIDEO: Arctic blast hits northern U.S.

An arctic blast has sent the majority of the U.S. Northeast and Midwest into a deep freeze, setting record lows in several spots on Thursday. Forecasters have warned the frigid temperatures could last through the New Year holiday. The National Weather Service is also reporting that a cold front bearing down on the Pacific Northwest is also expected to dump as much as 3 feet of snow starting Friday morning in parts of Washington state and the northern Rocky Mountains.
