    Philadelphia fell short of the previous record of 21 degrees. The temperature fell to 23 degrees officially. Still, it felt like the low teens due to a steady morning breeze.

    Across the entire Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions, the record cold was due to an Arctic blast.

    Temperatures are expected to slowly climb in the next several days.
