    NYC: Dangerous Cold Blast Follows Warm Start to Week

    By Tuesday morning residents and visitors to New York City will wonder what hit them when they step outside.

    Motorists and pedestrians should be on the lookout for icy patches Monday evening as Arctic air blasts quickly into the region. In some cases, ice can form before paved, concrete and wooden surfaces have a chance to dry out.

    It will feel about 60 degrees colder Tuesday morning, compared to the morning drive Monday.

    RealFeel® temperatures will be below zero much of the day Tuesday. Despite bright sunshine, actual high temperatures will be in the lower teens across the metro area.

    Tuesday will be the coldest day since Feb. 5, 1996 over much of the coastal mid-Atlantic.

    Weather conditions Monday night through Tuesday will make it dangerous to be outdoors for long periods of time without being properly dressed.

    There is some good news for folks struggling with the cold.

    Temperatures will slowly trend upward later this week and could touch 50 degrees in some locations this weekend.
