MIDTOWN — A bone-chilling freeze is about to sweep into New York.
Forecasters are warning that temperatures are about to dip into the teens in a short — but brutally sharp — taste of what winter could have in store.
And, as temperatures rise again at the weekend, the city could be hit with snow.
The bone-chilling air will sweep in from the north Wednesday night, according to the National Weather Service.
It will linger through Thursday and Friday with temperatures reaching highs in the mid 20s and lows of just 14, forecasters said.
“It will be a quick shot,” NWS spokesman Jay Engle said. “It won’t last forever.”
The 14-degree mark is a far cry from last year when the city reached a Dec. 15 record high of 68 degrees.
A wintry mix of snow and rain could hit the city Saturday, forecasters said.
