News 12 meteorologists say frigid conditions will kick off the workweek on Monday ahead of a slight warmup for the rest of the week.
Monday will start frigid with temperatures in the teens ahead of sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-30s.
Tuesday's forecast calls mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the low-40s.
Wednesday will be partly sunny with temperatures in the upper-40s.
There is a possibility for some snow showers on Thursday with highs in the low-40s.
HEADLINES: Bitter blast, very cold start to tomorrow AM & week. A cold front will move through tonight and usher in arctic air. Temperatures will fall into the teens & 20s, winds freshen up and turn NW. Wind chills in single digits & teens for AM commute.
NOW: Somewhat "milder" but the winds are making it colder still. Temps were the 40s today but feeling more like mid 30s at times. Watching front with some snow for New England tonight. Most of that snow won't hold together by the time the front gets to us. So going with a "weak squall" or brief showers maybe just NW NJ north of I-80/west of I-287 scenario. Some clouds and flurries at best outside this area, but don't get your hopes up.
NEXT: Generally benign week, weak systems passing north for a couple of days won't amount to much weatherwise. Will still "watch" Thursday as models have some snow showers sneaking in here still. Cold, then WARMER next weekend. Next week looking warmer.
