(CNN) - Schools in Minnesota are closing, Illinois' governor is warning
residents about hypothermia, and hundreds of flights have been canceled
at Denver Airport.

Even parts of the United States accustomed to cold weather are preparing
for the worst.

About 220 million people -- or 75% of the continental US population --
will endure below-freezing temperatures this week.

The biting cold already has caused at least one death in Minnesota and
another in Illinois. In many parts of the country, the coldest weather
is yet to come.

If you're 25 years old or younger, "you've never felt this cold before,"
CNN meteorologist Tom Sater said.

The winter storm has also led to the cancellation of 3,480 US flights on
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Flightaware.com.

Across the Midwest and Great Lakes, the brutal cold will likely shatter
dozens of records, CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen said.

Between Tuesday and Thursday, temperatures will plunge to 20-40 degrees
below zero in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes, Hennen said. Wind
chills will plummet to 35-60 below zero.

But the deep freeze is only half the story. The Dakotas are grappling
with blizzard conditions, the National Weather Service said. And heavier
snow is expected in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes, meaning
"dangerous to impossible travel conditions."
