Snow on the ground from Wednesday night's storm has not melted much at all, and will accentuate the cooling impact of this arctic air mass, especially at night. 

To recap, here is a summary map of the snow totals from that storm.

(Map is from the National Weather Service in Wakefield)

Sunday morning low temperatures will be even colder. Forecast low will be near 1°. A record low will likely be set Sunday morning. The current record low for that date is 10° set back in 2014. The record low for Saturday morning is zero and will probably not be threatened.

So, when do we warm up?

Next week we are finally above freezing! And take a look at Friday!
