(PIX11 WEATHER CENTER) — We will be in the deep freeze once again Tuesday as arctic air remains anchored over the region.

tuesday1

The high temperature will be 25 degrees in the afternoon, which is a more than twenty degrees below normal. High pressure will continue to move eastward and eventually offshore as we get into Wednesday.

Temperatures will not be as cold Wednesday, but will still be well below normal in to the low 30s.

tuesday2

We are keeping an eye on a storm system that will originate in the Mississippi Valley and move off the southeastern coast line. The storm will move along the eastern seaboard and will pass just east of our area. We might see a passing shower on Friday as this system skirts by us, but most of the precipitation will remain off shore.

Temperatures will gradually turn milder as we get into the weekend getting to the low 40s by Saturday.

Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with a chance of a rain or snow shower on Sunday.
