Harsh cold will loosen its grip on Boston Monday, but will come back with a vengeance by Tuesday.

Temperatures will briefly spike into the lower 40s and a rain or snow shower will occur on Monday as another Alberta Clipper system passes through the Northeast.

In the wake of this clipper, fresh frigid air will arrive and challenge the frigid days from earlier this January for the coldest daytime highs and nighttime lows so far this winter.

Temperatures will drop into the teens Monday night and remain there through Wednesday night.

Brisk winds ushering in the arctic blast will drop AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures under 10 below zero for the Tuesday morning commute.

Will It Snow on Feb. 2 at East Rutherford, N.J.?

Such cold will put residents who fail to bundle up at risk of enduring frostbite or hypothermia.

For those sick of the snow, the cold will offer protection from the storm set to spread substantial snow and ice across the South by keeping the storm track well off the Northeast coast.
