“We’re cold through Wednesday, but we’ll start moderating on Thursday and will get to near normal for Friday and this weekend,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson.

Tuesday will be a much cooler 20 degrees, though skies will be sunny for most of the day. Some clouds will arrive in the evening as temperatures drop to 11 once again.

Sunlight will prevail Wednesday, with highs only reaching the mid-20s. Skies will remain clear through the evening as lows sink near 12 degrees.

The arctic air will start leaving by Thursday morning, as temperatures climb into the upper 20s. Skies will be sunny and clear, with lows only dropping to 23 degrees overnight.

Highs will return to a normal 36 degrees Friday, sinking into the mid-20s that evening.
