to around zero in and around the New York City and New Jersey
Metro... Long Island... and coastal Connecticut. Temps will fall
to 5 to 10 below across interior portions of northeast New
Jersey... the lower Hudson Valley... and southern Connecticut.
Wind chill values during this time could reach life threatening

hypothermia for anyone who does not take proper precautions. In
addition... frozen pipes and overworked furnaces could leave your
house without heat or running water... and car batteries run the

30 minutes if proper precautions are not taken.
