Arctic blast a record low for the Big Apple

Friday temperatures in the Midwest for Nov. 10 2017

Saturday marked the second consecutive day of record-breaking cold for the Boston area.

"The winds will gradually lighten today and will lead to a good radiational cooling night tonight as winds remain light and the sky will remain mostly clear", the National Weather service wrote Saturday.

"These systems are pretty rare, but when you've got a large air mass coming down directly from the North Pole, we end up with classic mid-January weather", Simpson said.

Saturday afternoon, it will be sunny and chilly with highs near 40.

"It's going to be cold again tomorrow".

A brutal blast of Arctic air continues to freeze the tri-state - which saw temperatures in the 70s just a week ago - through Veteran's Day.

There will be some relief later in the day Saturday as the sun comes out, winds settle down and temperatures nudge into the upper 30s, Storm Team 4 says. There also is a chance of showers after 11 a.m., but forecasters believe not more than one-tenth of an inch is expected to fall. Temperatures climb by about 10 degrees, up to a high of 49 on Sunday.

In Trenton, the morning temperature dropped to 21 degrees, breaking the city's decades-old low of 25 for November 11.
