Bitter cold temperatures and blustery winds moved in to the area late Monday just as the rainy weather moved out.
Residents across the Delaware Valley woke up to below freezing temperatures and gusts of winds nearing 30 miles per hour Tuesday morning.
The cold spell is expected to last for several days with temperatures nearing record lows Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
And the winds will make it feel even colder.
"Wind chills will be in the low 20s at their warmest in Philadelphia and the I-95 corridor," said First Alert Meteorologist Bill Henley.
Drivers navigated some icy spots during the Tuesday morning commute as wet areas froze overnight.
The bitter cold will remain for the rest of the week. Wednesday morning we could see a record cold temperature of 20 degrees in the city with a high of 35.
Thursday we’re in for a high of 44, Friday a high of 38 and Saturday a high of 45.
Temperatures will finally start to rise by Sunday with a high of 58. Warmer weather will arrive by Monday with a high near 70 degrees.
