If you're not frozen yet, just make it through Wednesday morning and you should be good — until the weekend, that is.

An arctic airmass will linger over the tri-state into the morning, with wind chills hovering near or below zero amid wake-up temperatures in the teens for many.

Despite the frigid start, temperatures thankfully should climb to around 40 by later in the day. However, winds will still be brisk, with gusts up to 30mph possible along the coast.

The mercury rebounds more on Thursday, with highs expected around 44. That would be above normal for this time of year. Then the warming trends end.

Temperatures plunge back to the mid-30s Friday and closer to Tuesday's temperatures, around 20 degrees, on Saturday. Expect below-average temperatures for the latter half of January, with highs barely above freezing most of next week.

As for snow, Team 4 is eyeing another south-favoring storm that could roll in Sunday and bring more snow showers into Monday, which could make for a challenging morning commute.
