Sunday’s temperatures in the 40s was just a tease of the spring that feels like it may never come.
“Temperatures are going to be taking a nosedive,” said David Stark, a meteorologist from the National Weather Service.
The arctic blast moved into New York City late Sunday. Temperatures will continue to fall into the teens on Monday, down to 13 degrees by the evening rush. The sun will be out for the first workday of the week, but wind chills will make it feel more like the lower single digits.
Monday night will be a low around 1, with the winds making it feel as cold as -10 degrees.
The cold air will continue to flow in, and Tuesday will start out in the low single digits, with a high of 20 later in the day.
The week will be dry, with the only chance for snow on Wednesday.
“If there’s any type of warming there’s a slight moderation in the forecast on Wednesday,” said Stark, and temperatures will briefly hit the upper 30s.
Another cold blast will come through at the end of the week, though not as bitter cold, with temperatures in the teens and 20s on Thursday and Friday.
