    Temperatures will continue to plummet in the Harrisburg, Pa., area through Tuesday morning.

    Some untreated wet areas will freeze during the Monday evening rush hour, as temperatures in the wake of an Arctic cold front will plunge into the 20s.

    Temperatures Tuesday morning, compared to Monday morning will feel 50 to 60 degrees lower.

    A record-breaking low of 1 degree is forecast Tuesday morning. The old record is 5 degrees set during the World War II era, in 1942. The extreme cold will make it dangerous for outdoor activities.

    Tuesday will continue to be very cold with a high in the single digits.
