A frigid and bitter cold arctic mass will remain in place through the rest of the week, with dangerously cold wind chills from a gusty west-northwest breeze. A weak system will approach by Friday and is expected to bring some light snow showers, before a gradual warming trend develops into early next week with much more unsettled weather developing.
