Polar Vortex and Arctic Air to Leave Soon
Reprieve is on the way from the frigid air and the Polar Vortex that has brought extremely dangerous low temperatures to our area.
Both the cold air and the Polar Vortex will depart during the second half of this week, and a far-reaching January thaw will begin.
The coldest part of the air will rotate through and depart Tuesday night into Wednesday. As this happens, temperatures will start to climb out of the cellar.
Temperatures are forecast to reach 50 degrees here in New York City this coming weekend.
Unfortunately, after a relatively mild middle part of January, we are likely to experience a return of Arctic blasts later in the month.
