NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Get ready for another night of bitter cold in the Tri-State Area, with some areas once again hitting the single digits overnight.
And CBS 2’s Lonnie Quinn said because of the wind chill, the air in some areas will feel as if it were 0 degrees or even below zero.
The forecast overnight low in New York City for Wednesday night is 23 degrees. On Tuesday night, the low bottomed out at 22 – the coldest the city has seen since Feb. 12 of last year, when the temperature dropped to 20 degrees.
But the 20s were balmy compared to the lows in some outlying areas Tuesday night, and such was to be the case again 24 hours later. The overnight low is expected to drop to 7 degrees in Monticello, 8 in Cornwall, and 9 in Katonah, Quinn reported.
While the single digits may not be in order elsewhere, the temperatures will still be frigid. The low Wednesday night is expected to drop to 14 in Yonkers, 16 in Norwalk, Conn., and 18 in Brightwaters, Long Island.
And on Thursday morning, New York metro area residents will wake up to some truly frigid conditions. The wind chill will make it feel like 16 in New York City, 10 in Paramus, 8 in Brightwaters, 5 in Mineola, 0 in Monticello, and minus 5 in Katonah.
But it could be worse. The record for Jan. 2 in New York City is 2 degrees.
