It is going to get cold, really cold next week across New York State.

A massive arctic storm is set to sweep across New York from the Northwest and with that will be well below-average temperatures for the state.

We could see temperature drop by nearly 20 degrees in some parts of New York State. It looks like the storm will move into the area starting on Sunday and bring those arctic temperatures across the state for the entire week.

The Old Farmer's Almanac is calling for the average temperature to be anywhere between 2 to 5 degrees colder than normal for New York State next week. It looks like those temperatures will also head into the following week as well.

This will be the first extended cold snap we will have in New York so far this winter. This comes after much of New York had a very mild December.
