Dr. Ryan Maue has been tracking the forecasts for the Northeast, and the result is…ah, chilling. Maue says the “polar vortex” is responsible for the exceptionally cold and dry air invading the Northeast USA.
He goes on to say that the all time record for New York City of 22°F forecast by morning in NYC would be coldest, earliest temperature on record.
A record low temperature has already been set in Central Park according to the National Weather Service:
RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY 0245 AM EST SAT NOV 11 2017 ...RECORD LOW TEMPERATURE SET AT CENTRAL PARK NY... A RECORD LOW TEMPERATURE OF 25 DEGREES WAS SET AT CENTRAL PARK NY YESTERDAY. THIS BREAKS THE OLD RECORD OF 27 SET IN 1914. Source: http://ift.tt/2hsBXg7
The rest of New York State will be even colder by morning, with temperatures in the teens to hovering near zero.
