(NBC News) The Deep South is the next target for the deep freeze in a winter that won't quit.

Forecasters warned that ice could soon coat the front porches of Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia where winter storm alerts were posted Monday for the first time in almost four years.

At the same time, the Great Lakes shivered yet again under wind chills that approached 50 degrees below zero. 

The University of Minnesota and schools around Chicago and Minneapolis closed for the day.
