National Weather Service: Snow is in the forecast

According to the National Weather Service, the low Tuesday morning hit -12 degrees in Indianapolis, tying the record on this date set in 1887.

Thursday, there's also a slight chance for snow in the morning, but the skies are expected to start clearing up. Wind chill advisories or warnings have been put in effect for much of New England, northern Pennsylvania and NY.

"Confidence is increasing for accumulating snow" across eastern Virginia, northeast North Carolina and part of the Eastern Shore, the forecasting service said on social media.

The arctic air will finally shift to the east, returning high temperatures to seasonal levels. Here, pedestrians are rugged up in beanies as steam rises from a manhole in Lower Manhattan, New York. Here, a traffic engineering employee clears snow from traffic lights.

The cold is blamed in at least nine deaths in the past week.

"We want every resident to have shelter and warmth", she said in a tweet. As of Saturday night, no other precipitation was expected by the National Weather Service throughout the upcoming week.

Temperatures will feel like they're below zero today and tonight. The organizers said the arctic blast made jumping into the lake too unsafe.

With the forecast, we may approach the record for the most consecutive days with highs below 32 degrees in Central Park - the highest reaching 16 consecutive days in 1961.

On Tuesday, apparent temperatures will hover below 10 degrees across the state.
