After a springlike start to the week in New York City, a sharp change to frigid weather will come for Thursday.

Subfreezing air will quickly freeze up any wet or slushy roadways and sidewalks which could make for a slippery Thursday morning commute.

"Car doors and locks may freeze up as the frigid weather moves in," said Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek.

"The next few days will be like a winter sandwich," said AccuWeather.com Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams.

A frigid Thursday will be saddled between a pair of relatively mild days. Highs will return to the middle 40s on Friday before reaching the 50s by Saturday.
