Arctic blast a record low for the Big Apple

Get out the warm coats and hats; winter weather blows in Friday

The record low temperature for Saturday is 21 degrees (set in 1973), but we are forecasting 15 degrees.

Today: Windy, sun/clouds. High 32.

"It's a cold snap, but it gets more seasonal past Saturday night, and next week should be closer to normal", said Brian Lasorsa, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service.

Add a moderate northwest breeze, and the National Weather Service forecasts wind chills are expected to remain in the single digits through mid-morning. There also is a chance of showers after 11 a.m., but forecasters believe not more than one-tenth of an inch is expected to fall.

The Arctic front sweeps in Thursday night, bringing with it the coldest air the tri-state has seen since March.

Johnson said new record lows for November 11 were also set this morning in Newark (24 degrees) and Allentown (18 degrees), and tied in Reading, Pa. (18 degrees).

This morning's new record low was 3° colder than the previous record.

Things will warm up slightly for this weekend's sunny Sunday, with highs reaching into the mid- to upper-40s.

Buffalo's average high temperature is 50 degrees on Saturday's date and 49 degrees on Sunday.

The average low temperature for the region at this time of year is 38 degrees. And those warmer temperatures are forecast to continue through the rest of the week.
