GREENSBORO, NC -- A blast of air from the North Pole shattered long standing records in the Triad Tuesday morning. The low in Greensboro reached 5°, the coldest temperature in the Piedmont since 2° in Feb. 5, 1996.

Gusty winds over 30 mph at times also sent wind chills well below zero. High winds make it feel colder by sweeping a warm layer of air away from your skin.

Temperatures will be frigid again Tuesday night into Wednesday morning with a low of 13° expected at PTI. The record low of 6° set in 1970 is in no danger of being broken.

Bit by bit, temperatures will warm by the end of the week. In fact, highs will soar into the 50°s by Sunday.
