Now that the snow squalls have passed, the temperatures will continue to drop.
Bitter cold air will reach lows Thursday morning of 5 degrees to minus-5, said Joe Cioffi, the area's best-known meteorologist.
Wind chills will make it feel like -10 to -20, he said.

We just have to make it to the weekend, Cioffi said: Super Bowl Sunday temperatures will push into the high 40s and climb even higher, to low 50s, the next day, he said.
"We can say that barring any surprises, the first week to 10 days of February doesn’t look threatening as far as snow is concerned," Cioffi added.
