For Monday's big Penguin Swim, those courageous enough to take the dip can expect mostly sunny skies, with a high of 30 degrees, per the weather service. "That's pretty much where we are with this particular event".

As of Wednesday morning, the next time the Harrisburg area is expected to see temperatures above the freezing mark will be on January 6, when the high is expected to reach 36, according to AccuWeather.

The forecast for the rest of the week calls for high temperatures that won't get out of the teens and lows hovering in the single digits.

"For First Night, if you can in this extreme cold, cover all skin surfaces", he said.

Tomorrow: Cloudy with a 30 percent chance, mainly before noon.

Despite the frigid temperatures, Correia said her colleagues were not expecting any records for lows.

But now it will be dangerously cold the next few days for people who have to be outside for any period of time, especially people working outside.

"We worry about the use of space heaters or unvented gas heaters", Majors said, noting that they can create carbon monoxide within a residence or become a fire hazard.

The risk of wintry precipitation will linger in those areas possibly through 9 a.m.

Looking ahead to the weekend, Simpson said Bostonians celebrating New Year's Eve should expect to brace themselves for cold as well if traveling outdoors through the city. That puts us right about average, which is normally 20 inches by the end of December. That's pretty typical for these kinds of air masses.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch in effect late tonight through late Friday night, with possibly heavy snow making travel hard.

As you start putting together those awesome New Year's Eve party plans for this weekend, you might want to keep in mind to lay out some warmer clothes for morning after.
