Sub-Zero: Rare Frostbite Warning Issued For NYC

New York City’s NBC News affiliate reports:

An arctic airmass is slated to blast the tri-state area for the next two days at least. Wind chills will be near or below zero through the frigid span. The core of the cold air sinks in overnight, bringing feels-like temperatures below zero Tuesday morning, including in New York City.

A wind chill advisory has already been issued for Sullivan and Ulster counties for projected wind chills of -15 to -25 degrees, though more counties are expected to be added. Frostbite can set in on exposed skin in 30 minutes in those conditions.

Storm Team 4 expects Tuesday to be the coldest day in the city since January 2019, so make sure to bundle up and check on vulnerable neighbors and pets.
