    A brief surge of milder air through Monday will be followed by a cold blast in Boston.

    Boston will escape the worst of the snowstorm that clobbered Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit.

    The track of the snowstorm will instead lead to a brief rebound in temperatures and some rain for Boston through Monday.

    Also accompanying the rain will be areas of potentially dense fog that will lead to slow travel for motorists and possible flight delays.

    Temperatures will rise to the 50-degree mark Monday morning.

    Temperatures will plunge from the 50s on Monday midday to the mid-teens Monday evening, causing any standing water on untreated roads and sidewalks to turn icy.

    Highs in the teens on Tuesday and dangerously colder AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will force those in Boston to bundle up to avoid enduring frostbite or hypothermia.

    As nasty as the cold blast will be in New England, the worst of the coming Arctic outbreak will target the Midwest, South and mid-Atlantic.
