"We hit 23 [degrees] this morning".
The arctic blast of freezing air that sent shivers through the city on Saturday broke record low temperatures - and worse weather is on the way.
"The winds will gradually lighten today and will lead to a good radiational cooling night tonight as winds remain light and the sky will remain mostly clear", the National Weather service wrote Saturday.
But the cold snap won't last too long for New Yorkers - with forecast highs of 38 degrees on Saturday afternoon and 48 degrees on Sunday.
The weather is expected to only reach highs in the 30s Saturday. "It might not be record-breaking, but it could come close and people should expect to have below average temperatures for the foreseeable future", Simpson said.
Veterans Day will be partly cloudy and pleasant with highs in the low/mid 40s. There is a slight chance of showers between midnight and 4 a.m. on Wednesday, although less than one-tenth of an inch of rain is expected to fall. Records at other locations may also shatter, including a record low of 29 degrees set at LaGuardia in 1956 and a record low of 25 degrees set at Newark that same year.
