Greg Arason and his wife Margaret walk their dogs Eli and Quito(in red) in Southdale Monday. The cold temperatures didn't stop the couple from getting some exercise.
A well-bundled pedestrian walks past a wintry scene painted onto a Rosser Avenue shop window Tuesday afternoon. This long, bitterly-cold weather is expected to lift by the weekend in southern Manitoba.
A woman covers herself from the rain with a plastic garbage bag in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Tuesday. Heavy rain fell in the Argentine capital, lowering temperatures after the worst heat wave in decades.
Sundogs appear around the morning sun near Kitchener, Ont. as the sun rises on an extremely cold Tuesday morning. Sundogs are commonly made by the refraction of light off of ice crystals.
Icicles hang from oranges Tuesday at Bellamy Grove in Inverness, Fla. Chuck Bellamy, the north central Florida grove operator, said temperatures reached 30 degrees just before sunrise but he believes the fruit was spared damage. He expects another cold morning Wednesday, but a strong warming trend is forecast through the weekend in the area.
The Chicago skyline is seen behind a large chunk of ice near North Avenue Beach as cold temperatures remain with wind chills nearing minus 34 Celsius on Tuesday in Chicago. Dangerously cold polar air snapped decades-old records as it spread Tuesday from the Midwest to southern and eastern parts of the U.S. and eastern Canada, making it hazardous to venture outside and keeping many schools and businesses closed.
School buses parked at the Howard Street KPS administration building are covered in snow Tuesday in Kalamazoo, Mich. The region experienced freezing temperatures Tuesday.
A tugboat makes its way up the icy waters of the Mississippi River on Tuesday in St. Louis. Tuesday was the worst cold snap in nearly two decades for Missouri.
Pedestrians are reflected in a window as they walk through rain near Tower Bridge in London, Tuesday. At least three people have died in a wave of stormy weather that has battered Britain since last week, including a man killed when his mobility scooter fell into a river in Oxford, southern England.
Pedestrians walk near The Umbrellas of Yorgos Zongolopoulos amid deep fog on the seaside promenade in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki on Tuesday. Dense fog has settled over the city, leading to the delay of early morning airport departures and arrivals.
