We are looking at some very cold weather over the next 24 hours across New York State.

The cold snap started on Monday and will go until late tonight.


We are going to see the low temps drop into the 20s or even into the teens before we get a bit of a warmup heading into the weekend.

With cold temps on tap, what is the coldest it has ever been in New York?

Well, you would have to travel way back to 1979. According to the website coldweather.net, the coldest temperature ever recorded in New York State happened that year. It was on February 18th of that year when the temperature was recorded as -52 degrees.

While we won't be close to that number, it will drop below freezing in some spots in New York so make sure if you have any other pets you bring them in or make sure they have a warm spot to spend the night.
