Frigid air will continue to sweep the city through the weekend, following a temperature drop into record-breaking lows.

Due to the extreme cold in the evening and early morning hours, anyone outdoors may at risk for cold-related illnesses such as frostbite and hypothermia.

Temperatures are forecast to rebound a bit heading into the weekend, climbing to near the freezing mark Saturday afternoon.

Colder weather is poised to return for the second half of the weekend as the chance of snow moves into the city.

The frigid weather and the chance for snow are expected to continue into the next week as temperatures slide back into the teens.
