Much colder air and even snowflakes are heading for Harrisburg Tuesday.

Arctic air is set to blast in on Tuesday and hold highs to the lower 40s.

Brisk winds ushering in the cold will create even colder AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

The wind and the cold will have many people reaching for winter coasts and turning up their heat.

Tuesday night, temperatures will return to the 20s. On Wednesday, temperatures will fail to climb out of the lower 40s.

While escaping its first snowstorm of the season, Harrisburg could still see wet snowflakes mix in with rain Monday night through Tuesday morning as the arctic air arrives.
