Frigid air will continue for much of the week in central Pennsylvania.

A clipper system on Sunday opened the door for some of the most frigid air of the winter.

Temperatures will drop like a rock on Monday after a high in the low 30s during the morning hours. Monday night's low will fall into the single digits, but brisk winds will cause AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures to plummet below zero.
