Dangerously cold weather has a grip on the Tri-State (NJ/NY/CT) area through Monday with wind chills that make it feel even colder.
Temperatures have plunged into the single digits with blustery conditions creating wind chills that feel well below zero.
Advisories cover much of the region with wind chills as low as 15 below zero expected in portions of northeast New Jersey, southern Connecticut and southeast New York into Monday afternoon.
The cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.
New York City is under a Code Blue Weather Emergency. No one who is homeless and seeking shelter during a Code Blue will be denied.
The NYPD is warning people to keep their pets indoors during the frigid temperatures.
In addition to the wind chills, as temperatures plummeted well below freezing, plenty of residual moisture and leftover standing water on area roads has frozen.
This has lead to areas of black ice. Anyone out driving or walking should be prepared for slippery roads and walkways, and use extra caution.
