BIG APPLE CHILL

News

The Big Apple will be more like NYC on Ice . An arctic cold front packing dangerous winds of up to 60 mph could make it feel like it’s 20 below zero by Sunday — the coldest wind-chill factor since 1993’s “Storm of the Century,” forecasters warned. Sunday morning conditions will be downright dangerous, with 6 degrees or lower.

NYC Emergency Management has issued a Travel Advisory for 3-7" of snow (locally higher amounts possible) tonight, and a cold weather alert for extremely frigid temperatures & subzero wind chills through Monday, 2/16. The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory from 1PM today - 1PM 2/15, and a High Wind Warning from midnight - 2PM 2/15. Near-blizzard conditions & low visibilities are possible. The system will make travel dangerous late tonight through early Sunday. New Yorkers are asked to exercise caution when driving and to check on neighbors, friends, and relatives who may be at an increased risk of being affected by the extreme cold.

The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning citywide from midnight tonight to 2:00 PM Sunday, 2/15. Sustained winds of 30-40 MPH and gusts up to 60 MPH are expected. Please visit http://www.weather.gov/nyc for the latest information.
