Frigid air will continue to sweep the city through the weekend, following a temperature drop into record-breaking lows.

Due to the extreme cold in the evening and early morning hours, anyone outdoors may at risk for cold-related illnesses such as frostbite and hypothermia.

Temperatures are forecast to rebound a bit heading into the weekend, climbing to near the freezing mark Saturday afternoon.

Colder weather is poised to return for the second half of the weekend as the chance of snow moves into the city.

The frigid weather and the chance for snow are expected to continue into the next week as temperatures slide back into the teens.

This Day In Weather History

New York City, NY (1835)
"Most furious storm in 20 years .... Snow rollers were seen in Battery Park when natural snowballs, formed when a strong gusty wind blows over a moist snow surface, were pushed along by the wind until they grew to a 24-inch diameter. At this point, they became too heavy and were left to dot Battery Park like so many boulders in a New England hayfield". (New York Post)

New Jersey (1970)
Snowy Easter when 16-20" fell across the northern part of the state. Temperature fell from 60 degrees on 26th to 2 degrees on the 30th.

Northeast (1977)
Early heat wave, but the heat was welcome after a bitterly cold January. Binghamton, NY, reached 82 degrees, a new March record. Another March record was set in Hartford, CT, as the mercury there soared to 87. Baltimore Airport had a record high of 87, also a March record.
