NEW YORK (CBS 2/ WCBS 880 / 1010 WINS) — The workweek  started off with a wintry chill and Tri-State residents can expect a repeat performance Tuesday.

Monday evening proved to be as cold as the morning and afternoon. CBS 2’s Meteorologist Lonnie Quinn said most people were currently experiencing winds gusting over 20 m.p.h.

Quinn said this morning, the area experienced “the coldest air so far this season.”

It feels an awful lot like winter, but winter is still 15 days away.

“It’s a little bit too cold, but I love it. I love the New England weather,” one woman told CBS 2’s John Marshall.

Others said they braved the temperatures by wearing plenty of layers.

“3 layers of pants, 3 layers of shirts — hats, stuff like that,” another man said.
