Weather Alert(1)!
"Special Statement" ...Major outbreak of cold air this weekend... Bitterly cold temperatures will move into the area this weekend. * Temperatures Saturday night into early Sunday morning will fall close to zero in and around New York City...and zero to 5 below across Long Island...interior northeast New Jersey...the lower Hudson Valley...and southern Connecticut. Wind chill values during this time could reach life threatening levels as cold as 20 to 25 below zero. * High temperatures on Sunday will only be in the teens. * Cold spells of this magnitude bring a risk of frostbite and 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 risk of dying. * Never venture outdoors without wearing gloves...a hat and several layers of clothing. Wind chill values late Saturday night into Sunday morning could lead to frostbite in less than 30 minutes if proper precautions are not taken. * Run water at a trickle and keep Cabinet doors open to prevent pipes from freezing. * Never use a stove or oven to heat your home or use an open flame to melt frozen pipes. Many house fires result from these practices. * Check tire pressure and your car battery. Be sure your car has a winter safety kit that includes a blanket...warm clothes and gloves in case your car breaks down or becomes stranded. * Take extra steps to keep your pets warm and know their limits to cold. 1127 am EST Thu Feb 11 2016 ...Major outbreak of cold air this weekend...
