As we approach midnight, temps will be right around 10, feeling more like 0 to 5 below. This is dangerous cold, so be prepared if you’re braving Times Square! This will likely become the second coldest ball drop since records began. BRRRRRR!

For New Year’s Day and the start of 2018, expect much of the same… temps in the teens, feeling closer to zero. When does the mercury climb back above freezing? Not within the next week. In fact, late week could bring even colder air. Stay tuned!

Stay warm and Happy New Year!
