Temperatures will look to hover below freezing until early next week. If you're searching for a break from the arctic air, you're in luck because temperatures get a boost (by boost, our forecasters mean slightly above our mid-30 normal for the time of the year). It doesn't stick around for too long but will be a welcomed change. Who knew the idea of high temperatures near 40 degrees could seem so balmy for late-January/early February.
