CHICAGO (CBS) — Remnants of Super Typhoon Nuri were moving off the Japanese coast, and expected to reach Alaska’s western Aleutian Islands over the weekend. Next week, the storm will bring bitter cold weather to the Chicago area.

When you get a storm that takes the sort of path Nuri is taking, that means big changes in the weather.

“Any typhoon that occurs northeastward from Japan, we always look for some problems with cold weather in the Midwest and East about a week to ten days later,” said AccuWeather meteorologist Elliot Abrams.

You could call it the return of the Polar Vortex, but that’s not technically correct.

“Every time that kind of weather happens, again, that same name is used, but it’s just going to get real cold. That’s the point,” Abrams said.

It doesn’t really matter what you call it, temperatures will be below freezing in the Midwest and Great Plains next week.

“Cold air plunges into the Plains States in the middle of next week, and then runs straight eastward, and so we’re looking at nights in the teens and twenties, and days perhaps below freezing for a little while at the end of next week,” Abrams said.

Even so, it won’t be a record for cold in November. It’s been much colder before, with temperatures as low as 2 below in 1950, but it hasn’t been this cold in November since 1991.

The cold snap could start with a little snow Monday night.

While what’s coming might not be a Polar Vortex, it’s going to remind Chicago residents of last winter’s frigid conditions.
