FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Another blast of Arctic air is on its way to Fort Wayne.

It won't be as brutally cold as November, but not by much.

That's because it's a modified Arctic air mass that's moving in.

An air mass is large volume of air that is uniform in temperatures and moisture.

Air masses get their names from where they form over.

A modified air mass means the air mass has changed from it's original properties as it has passed over land.

You can find out more information about air masses here.

This air mass formed over the Arctic and moved southward and became warmer.

We're going to see feel-like temperatures in the teens for the entire day on Tuesday.

However, Wednesday morning is when our feel-like temperatures will be in the single digits.

You're going to need the hats, gloves, scarves and winter coats over the next few days.
