It's been a pretty bumpy ride the past few weeks with snow, ice and bone-chilling temperatures and this week is no better. Temperatures take a dive beginning Monday night in Northern Virginia and stay there through Thursday. Snow is not currently in the week's forecast.

Here's the "deep freeze" timeframe:
- Monday: High near 35 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures plunge to 4 degrees Monday night with wind chill values as low as -5.
- Tuesday: Partly sunny with a high near 17 degrees. Wind chill values could go as low as -8. Winds 8 to 13 MPH.
