Get ready to throw open the windows, the polar vortex is about to be chased out of town.

From a low of 2 degrees Fahrenheit (minus-17 Celsius) on Thursday, temperatures in New York are set to steadily rise to a high of 60 degrees by Tuesday, said David Roth, a senior branch forecaster at the U.S. Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. Chicago, which saw the mercury drop as low as minus-23 Fahrenheit the last few days, could hit 52 on Monday.
