Cold to Persist
In areas of the Interstate-95 corridor hit by the blizzard, highs most days will be in the 20s to lower 30s with lows most nights falling into the teens through Friday.
While the cold will not be extreme through Friday, it will be cold enough to raise concerns for those without heat or limited heat in the wake of the storm.
People are encouraged to seek out a neighbor or shelter where heat is available to avoid the risk of hypothermia and frostbite.
“During much of the first week of February, blasts of arctic air are forecast to slice into the Northeast,” Anderson said.
