Break out the Canada Goose jackets, New York: An arctic blast, with potential record-breaking low temperatures, is heading to the city just in time to ruin your weekend. Starting Thursday, forecasters are calling for frigid temperatures at least 20 degrees below average, mixed with heavy winds that’ll make it feel more like the single digits. Things will "warm up" after Friday, but then another winter storm is expected to drench weekend plans in snow and freezing rain.
Along with the blustery weather comes the potential for “power outages, downed tree limbs, scaffolding incidents, heat complaints, problems with frozen ponds, fire from space heaters, gas and water main ruptures,” according to NY1. Plus, MTA service changes and delays, because the J train isn’t bad enough already.
