The city will face another week of bitter-cold temperatures and some snow after Sunday's warm respite from bad weather.

The forecast calls for highs that barely crack 20 degrees, with lows plunging into the teens. Temperatures will be below freezing Tuesday and could reach below zero with the windchill, according to the National Weather Service.

Tom Kines, an AccuWeather meteorologist, said normal temperatures should be at least in the low-40s.

"Just the fact that the temperatures on a lot of these days are going to be in the 20s, it's way below normal for this time of year," Kines said. "There's no sign of any real mild weather heading our way."

The high temperature will only be 20 degrees in Central Park Tuesday, and wind chills could drop it to five degrees. The low will be between two and four degrees, but the wind will make it feel like one degree below zero.

Mayor Bill de Blasio reiterated that New Yorkers should limit their time outside during the colder parts of the day and to call 311 if they have any heat or hot water problems.

“Call early, don't call late. Let people know, let 3-1-1 know immediately,” he said at a news conference Monday.

Snow will fall on the city again on Wednesday, which will feel a little warmer, with a high of 37 degrees. But the weather will turn back to frigid for Thursday and Friday.
