New York City meteorologist Eric Holthaus writes in the Wall Street Journal blog, Metropolis, that Tuesday’s high was 23 in Central Park. He says it’ll warm up a bit this week and that we could get hit with a big snowstorm this weekend—so get out your shovels and sleds! Stock up on hats and waterproof gloves!
Holthaus says Tuesday was the coldest day since Jan. 30, and that Dutch Harbor, Alaska, was 15 degrees warmer.
Florida also saw record lows, he reported, so there’s no escape.
