NEW YORK CITY — Cold weather disrupted several subway lines during Friday morning's rush-hour commute — just hours after the freeze halted Metro-North and left commuters stuck at Grand Central for hours, the MTA said.

The 3, A, C, D, and R subway lines were all experiencing disruptions and delays as of 6:30 a.m., most of which were attributed to weather conditions, the MTA said on its website.

It was 10 degrees in Central Park with temperatures expected to rise only another 8 degrees for a high of 18, according to the National Weather Service.

The problems came on the heels of a power glitch that halted Metro-North trains in the city between 7:45 and 10 p.m., according to the New York Post.

Metro-North service appeared to be back to normal Friday morning, according to the MTA's website.

Commuters on both regional rail and subways should check the website for service updates.
