PARAMUS, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Snow and bone-chilling cold could threaten to alter many Valentine’s Day plans this weekend.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory from Thursday night into Friday for many parts of the region.

Wind chills early Thursday were expected to drop to minus 10 in New York City, minus 14 in Boonton, and a certifiably dangerous minus 25 in Liberty, CBS2’s Lonnie Quinn reported.
Friday will stay cold with a projected high of 19. But wind chills will make it feel like it’s below zero for most of the day, forecasters said.
Snow is possible for parts of the area on Saturday, Valentine’s Day. Although Saturday’s high is an estimated 33 degrees, strong gusty winds will return that night and drive wind chills back down to below zero Sunday and Monday.
So far, most restaurant owners in Rutherford said despite the forecast for bitter cold temperatures and snow, they’ve had very few cancellations if any for Valentine’s Day, 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck reported.
