But this week, some relief, at least with the cold, is on the way.
Temperatures will rise to a high of 46 degrees on Sunday with mostly sunny skies, the weather service says. That trend will continue through the week, with a high of 55 degrees on Wednesday, making it the warmest day of the year.
Approach your optimism with caution, though. There's a small chance of snow Friday.
