Warmer temperatures across the Northeast as Texas faces storms: Tuesday weather forecast
Wednesday's updates: Read the latest weather news here.
After brutally cold temperatures hit the Northeast, an ice storm landed in Texas and other dangerous winter weather spread across the country last week, some areas will see milder weather on Tuesday.
Temperatures in parts of the Northeast and in some cities along the I-95 corridor are expected to reach over 50 degrees on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
The milder temperatures come after a polar vortex brought record-breaking cold weather.
But in Texas, which saw an icy winter storm last week, residents are already preparing for potentially severe thunderstorms in the coming days.
