NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- An arctic blast that brought record-breaking cold to the Midwest is now spreading shivers across the Tri-State area.

The wintry chill swept into the New York City area on Tuesday, plunging the region's temperatures below freezing making it feel more like January than early November.

On Wednesday morning, the city saw temperatures in the mid-20s with a wind chill dipping down to 10 degrees. Afternoon highs are projected to be between 30 and 35 in the city, while the suburbs won't get above freezing.

Wednesday evening's weather will be cold and clear, with temperatures in the upper 20 for the city, while the suburbs will be in the teens and 20s.

Thursday is projected to be a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures between 40 and 45, while Friday will be a sunny with a high of 50 degrees.

The weekend is likely to bring more cold weather.
