ANOTHER VERY-COLD SHOT FOR MANY IN THE NYC AREA
Colder temperatures than expected tonight into Tomorrow, please stay warm.
Why colder? Stronger winds are whipping though the area and expected to last longer
January winter makes a brief return tonight...
Temperatures no where near spring. Mid 20s along Coastal CT, especially in the eastern portions. Much colder few miles inland reaching low 20s. Colder as you hard into interior NY.
Long Island with sub-freezing temperatures, especially eastern Long Island where temperatures could drop into the low 20s for the AM low tomorrow. Just a few miles can make a big difference from coastal areas to interior places.
Note Riverhead, LI they could very well drop into the teens, also places immediate places to the southwest.
Please be reminded to stay warm, don't be fooled with the earlier spring temperatures, wear warm clothing (scarfs, gloves, warm thick hoodies/winter jackets, warm socks, boots etc..just like in January.
Stay indoors of you don't have to go anywhere, keep your pets and plants warm as well.
These are the AM temperatures for tomorrow.
Why so cold? Heck, wasn't winter over?
Ver strong gust winds have been howling outside since last night after that cold front moved with the rain knocking those 60s we felt to upper 40s in a matter of 2 hours.
These winds will be responsible for the big freeze tomorrow..
Current wind gusts (in knots)
25kts equal nearly 30 mph and 30 kts equal nearly 35 mph
Tomorrow's chilly wind chills - this is how the temperatures, combined with the winds, could feel like.
Look at those teens! - Very cold
The winds are expected to gradually decrease starting tonight but they still are expected to be strong enough to make you shiver out there tomorrow. Again, be careful, stay warm at all times. Avoid, by all means, getting sick!
I'll report the low temperatures recorded at selected places tomorrow afternoon
