they will have to have heaters to keep the beer from freezing. dillon live in green bay, wisconsin. dillon, how cold is it right now? >> caller: it is cold right now. a side note. a warm beer actually sounds really good right about now. it's 6 degrees. wind chills at about 10 below. keep in mind this area is used to this. the packers have played in five of the ten coldest nfl games on record, four of those here at lambeau field naturally earning the name frozen tundra. a lot of talk comparing today's game to the ice bowl. that game was 13 degrees below zero with a wind chill of minus 48 degrees. today at game time should be around 5. wind chills at 15 below. not as cold as the ice bowl but dangerously cold for fans and players alike and the coldest is still yet to come. the national weather service of minneapolis calls this deep
freeze quote historic. forecasters are warning that the lowest temperatures in 20 years. >> we're talking subzero highs. >> reporter: arctic air is pushing far south and east covering an enormous swath of the country. 100 million americans will be affected. records could fall from michigan to georgia where they go see single digits. minnesota's governor say it's too dangerous to send kids into the school. big school districts in wisconsin including milwaukee are out too. perhaps more than a million kids will stay home monday. >> flights are cancelled. >> reporter: between the cold and snow nearly 7,000 flights have been cancelled across the country since thursday. the ripple effect of airport delays in the northeast and midwest is spreading from denver to palm beach, florida. >> the airport got shut down
twice while we were in the air. >> reporter:. out on the roads more snow in the midwest and rain in the south bringing the possibility of flash freezing. >> we tallied over 8,000 calls. >> reporter: that's a record for aaa in new england. they say it's a good idea to start your car over the weekend. >> did a quick trip around the block to get the blood flowing in the vehicle so on monday morning when you head out. >> reporter: firms are warning to stay off the roads. crews dealt with frozen water lines fighting this fire north of providence. in the end the structure of frozen and destroyed. dangerous conditions also for the homeless or anyone who is going to be outside for any length of time. it's very important to keep checking for frostbite. >> one of the things people will see first is intense redness and pain and that's going to be followed by numbness. >> reporter: that's a major
concern in green bay today as fans get ready for another ice bowl. now the coldest weather is still yet to come and here's why. we have what's called a polar vortex. normally sitting up in the north pole. look how far south this is. this is exceptionally far south and stay put as we start off the day today into tomorrow. you can see it does slowly move eastward as we go into monday and eventually into northeast by the time we get to tuesday. finally wednesday it will start to lift off to the north. what does it mean for fans today in green bay and rest of the upper midwest. we're going to see brutally high cold temperatures. that cold is working into areas like minneapolis where it's about 9 degrees below zero for a high temperature. then monday 12 below for a high in green bay. now the reason why this is so important, these are a lot of numbers to throw at you with wind chills of 45 to 65 degrees below zero but if you have
unexposed skin it could get frostbite in about five to ten minutes. that's a very short period of time. that's why it's so dangerous and that's why you need to cover as much of your skin as possible and goes for your face as well. on tuesday green bay should make it up to 4 degrees, minneapolis gets up to 1. we'll start to see improvements but not like it's going to warm up significantly around here any time soon. we'll just lose those record low high temperatures however you want to put it. craig and ericca. >> you touched on this a little bit. it will be spring like here in new york but it's making its way east, correct? >> it certainly is. it's going to be bizarre how warm it is today with the rain in the northeast, eventually by monday temperatures up around 50 degrees. but that cold front that's sitting back in the great lakes it's extremely brutal and by tuesday that's whe to notice the temperatures crash. so all of the melt cigarette going to refreeze. take a look at these high temperatures. today 45 in new york, 40 on
monday, 13 by tuesday. even washington, d.c. drops to 14 degrees by tuesday. highs on monday in atlanta, georgia, 19 degrees. again that's not even fact jorge in the wind chill which will make it feel like it's at zero or below and, again, that's that dangerous cold. you want to bundle up and cover up as much of your skin as you can and put on layers and really just stay indoors because this is a dangerous kind of cold that we don't see too often. >> all right, dillon. now to that emergency plane landing right in the middle of a busy highway here in new york. nbc news exclusively obtained this video taken in the moments after that plane landed. incredibly all three people on board are just fine this morning. >> reporter: good morning. you know that idea that new yorkers have seen it all, they are not surprised by much. well they are pretty amazed that one.
take a look. not because it landed right here along this busy highway, but because no one was seriously injured. it's being called the miracle on the major-day con. stretch of highway north of manhattan. the single-engine plane was on a sightseeing flagt saturday afternoon when it lost power and started going down. closer and closer to stunned drivers below. a quick thinking road crew out after the recent snowstorm saw the disaster unfolding. >> we started slowing down the traffic so nobody would get hurt and the plane doesn't get hit by the cars. the plane hit the ground and came straight down, think it tree tops. >> reporter: the small plane touched couldn't, careening to a stop without hitting a single car on the busy road. >> plane struck down in the right-hand lane of the northbound-day con, skidded approximately 100 yards to a
stop. the three passengers on board was safely removed. one of them with minor injuries. >> reporter: the pilot and two female passengers were treated and leased from hospital within hours. >> we expected everybody was fine. there was no fires in the airplane. there was no sparks. >> reporter: engine trouble that could have ended in disaster. were it not for that road crew and pilot who seems to have done everything right. >> he flew the airplane exactly the way his training taught him to. he kept his head. the results are good. it's a success story in every conceivable way. >> reporter: so the faa is now investigating, the ntsb may as well. the road has been cleaned up. any hydraulic fluid that leaked has been taken off the road. it's back open and moving well on what's expected to be a busy travel day. president obama is making his way back to the white house

"the washington post" reported automatic enrollment failed for 100,000 for those that qualify for medicaid or chip but we hear stories of people who had success. any idea what 2014 holds for the future of the president's signature legislative achievement so far? >> the expectation is how many people will sign up. the numbers are important because to really sustain the system, to make sure prices stay reasonable they have to have about 7 million. that's what hhs secretary sebelius says. 7 million people actually enroll in health care. a lot of questions what's the impact on cost. what do consumers do with the
insurance. what's the impact on quality. policy will unravel even though it stays as a hot political issue especially with the mid-terms coming up. >> president back in the oval office tomorrow. what are some of the other big ticket items on his agenda? >> i would look at the economy. this is promising to be a goodyear for the economy. 2014, economic growth, the stock market. the president wants to play at that role. he wants to get political credit. look for him to pick this fight right away on restoring those jobless benefits for those out of work a long time. look for a vote on this tomorrow. he wants to pick a fight with republicans on raising the minimum wage. this is where the president wants to make an argument about how the united states continues to be competitive during a growth period for the economy, which he wants to usher in. >> let's go overseas for a moment. iraq descends into violence. we heard al qaeda has taken control of fallujah.
we heard from senators mccain and graham who blames the administration. are we going to see a debate reignited in this country on what to do in iraq? >> i think in some quarters. i don't think the united states public has any interest in getting involved in iraq. i think what's so tragic about this is that this is a period of time when you have sunni militant, some al qaeda linked spreading iniraq and neighboring syria. so you got this powder keg that we're seeing. does the united states have any responsibility? this is where we lost a lot of u.s. soldiers, a third of casualties one iraq were in this part of iraq, anbar province where al qaeda was so strong. the question is what responsibility does the u.s. have to see the iraqis do well. this is not isolated to iraq. afghanistan, we're supposed to come out of there.
