Harsh cold will loosen its grip on New York City Monday but will come back with a vengeance by Tuesday.

Temperatures will briefly spike to near 40 Monday morning with a brief shower or flurry before a cold front swings through in the afternoon.

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 fall to just 11 degrees Monday night, then only recover into the teens on Tuesday.

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

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.
