NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A snowstorm followed by brutally cold temps seems to be the norm around here this winter.
Tuesday’s snowstorm left more than a foot of snow in some parts of the region and also left behind biting cold across the Tri-State Area.
Forecast: Bitterly Cold
Heavy wind gusts earlier in the day died down, but wind chills remained below zero throughout the day.
As of 11 p.m., the air temperature was 10 degrees, with a winds to the north at 18 mph and a wind chill of minus 6, CBS 2’s Lonnie Quinn reported.
The temperature Wednesday topped out at just 18 degrees.
And if you are looking for relief and a break in the misery, you will probably just have to go on vacation. The low overnight Wednesday into Thursday will drop to 6 degrees in the city, with a high of 22 following during the day Thursday.
The low for Thursday night drops to 9 degrees, followed by a high of 19 for Friday. On Saturday, the high jumps just one degree above freezing to 33 degrees – hardly enough to melt much snow, Quinn reported.
“Russian winter,” a Latvian native living in Brooklyn told 1010 WINS’ John Montone.
