It was colder in New York Monday than it was in Antarctica. New York experienced temperatures in the teens, while it was in the 30s in Antarctica - a continent known for its frigid weather.
Record low temperatures were set at Laguardia, JFK and Newark Airport, among other locations, weather data shows.
There was a high of 19 in Central Park Monday. It will briefly get warmer as the week continues, but a shot of arctic air headed toward New York will bring the coldest temperatures of the season yet.
Morning lows this weekend will be in the single digits.
