3 Days in a Row! Cold Snap Breaks Records Again

Don't worry, though, by Monday we'll be back in the 50s again

What to Know

  • A blast of Arctic air broke records in the tri-state Saturday morning as temps dropped into the 20s with wind-chills in the teens
  • Decades-old record lows were broken in Central Park
  • The weather warmed up on Sunday and it'll be in the 50s by mid-week

Your hats and gloves got a crash course in winter this week. 

For the third day in a row, the tri-state shattered the record-low daily temperatures. On Sunday morning, new records were set at JFK airport (29 degrees) and Newark airport (28 degrees). 

That came after Central Park recorded a low of 24 degrees on Saturday morning and 25 degrees on Friday evening, breaking records set in 1933 and 1924, respectively. 

In fact, the National Weather Service said record lows were also set early Saturday at LaGuardia, JFK and Newark airports, and at Bridgeport, Connecticut. 

But the warm-up has already started. Temperatures were rising to the mid to upper 40s on Sunday afternoon.  They're back in the 50s for the rest of the week.
