Are you ready for wacky weather? Although you may not feel it yet, there are ind chill advisories, dense fog, and 30 to 50 degree swings in temperatures in the forecast.

Our region will be dealing with the coldest air in nearly twenty years. Forecasters say the local temperatures will become extremely cold as air sends the mercury tumbling from late Monday into Tuesday. In the morning temperatures will begin in the single digits to below zero.

The strong and gusty wind will send wind chill values down to -15 to -25, which is dangerously low and frostbite can form in less than half an hour.

Be very careful going outside; make sure you are wearing several layers and all extremities are covered. If you do not have a place to stay, New York City Homeless Shelters and Warming Centers the needy are available 24/7.

Below is a link for all of the homeless shelters and services for the needy that provide help to those in need for New York, NY and surrounding cities.
