While a major snowstorm was recently denied in the Boston area, that will not be the case for cold air into midweek.

After a number of March record low temperatures were set in the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday, daily record low temperatures may fall Wednesday morning.

Highs are forecast to be within a few degrees of the freezing mark Wednesday and Thursday. The normal average high temperature for early March in the area is in the lower 40s.

Temperatures will slowly climb during the balance of the week with highs forecast to reach the 40s Friday and Saturday.

A southern storm system will be monitored for possible snow in coastal mid-Atlantic Thursday into Friday morning. However, odds favor this storm remaining to the south. A couple of weak disturbances moving in from the Midwest may bring spotty snow showers to the area through Wednesday night.
