Cold Weather Disrupts Subways for Morning Commute
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.
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.
