Coldest Temperatures Of The Season Arrive In New York City

After an unseasonably warm New Years' weekend, an Arctic blast of air will give the tri-state region a serious chill Tuesday.

According to the Wall Street Journal, temperatures will remain in the teens and twenties until Thursday but blustery winds will make it feel sub-zero. North winds Tuesday will be between 21 and 23 mph, with gusts as high as 37 mph. There is also a 20 percent chance of snow.

Wednesday will be the coldest, with a high of only 28 degrees. Put into perspective, the normal low for Central Park this time of year is 27 degrees.

Only a few flurries are expected during the cold spell and come Thursday, slightly warmer weather will return, leading into a weekend where temperatures will once again reach into the 50s, just as they did during a snow-free December.
