NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - The arctic blast that blanketed the New York City region was expected to lift by early next week.
The region will seemingly swing into another season with temperatures climbing to 55 degrees on Monday and 58 degrees on Tuesday, making for a difference of more than 70 degrees from the coldest day the previous week.
The climb will be gradual over the weekend with highs in the mid- 30s on Saturday and mid- 40s on Sunday.
While wind chill warnings and advisories were canceled Friday, cold continued to cover the region with temperatures in the low- 20s. Some snow was possible for areas south and west of NYC on Friday.
Forecasters said the polar vortex that slammed the Midwest and impacted the Northeast was "rotating up into Canada" and was not expected to return in the next couple of weeks.
