Bitter cold remains, but temperatures begin to moderate in New York area

New York News


Bitter cold weather continues its grip on the Tri-State area, though temperatures are less harsh than they were Monday.

After temperatures dipped to the lowest levels in almost three years in Central Park, there was sun and a few clouds with highs in the upper 20s Tuesday.

More importantly, the wind only averaged about 6 to 12 mph.

Wednesday will be mostly cloudy and not as cold, with rain arriving in the afternoon. The precipitation could mix with sleet or snow at the onset, especially in some distant northern and western suburbs.

Highs will make it all the way into the lower 40s.

We could hit 50 degrees on Thursday as rain tapers to showers, but expect another cold shot to arrive later Friday.
