The entire region will remain trapped in the deep freeze through Thursday with just some slow improvements by tomorrow afternoon. Tonight will be bitter cold with temperatures as low as 15 well inland and around 20 near the beaches. Roads will remain covered in ice and snow, and any melting will quickly turn to ice once again. Wind chills will reach the single digits at times through the night. 

Thursday will see a slow return to sunshine, and a slow warm up. After a full 36 hours below freezing, temperatures will finally climb above 32 by the mid-to-late morning hours. We'll see some good melting through the day, but another re-freeze is on the way Thursday night with temperatures again in the 20s.
