Snow Gives Way to Frigid Temps

Cold temperatures linger

Temperatures will hover in the 20s today as a brisk cold rolls into the area following a day of snow.

Temperatures were in the low to mid teens this morning in New York City and the surrounding suburbs. The wind chill made it feel closer to single digits in some areas. The high temperature is expected to be 29 today.

The cold temps come a day after another winter storm dumped almost six inches of snow in parts of New York City and Long Island. Most of the tri-state was covered with snow with Staten Island getting over 5 inches and most of Long Island reporting 4 to 5 inches of snow on Tuesday. Parts of New Jersey got just an inch of snow while others got 6 inches.

Most major roads are plowed and treated around the tri-state area, but motorists are urged to use caution because temperatures are below freezing and there are slick spots.

Pedestrians need to be careful on untreated sidewalks.

The storm caused airport delays and several minor accidents Tuesday night. Roads were still slick in some areas Wednesday morning with reports of several weather-related accidents in New Jersey and Long Island affecting the morning commute.

Thursday brings clear skies, but the mercury isn't expected to budge with the forecast calling for a high temperature of just 25.

Warmer weather returns on Friday with an expected high temperature of 36 degrees. Saturday will feel like a heat wave as the temperature jumps back up into the 40s with a high of 46 expected.
