Streets in Lower Manhattan were closed by Port Authority near the World Trade Center site.

The Manhattan-bound lanes of the George Washington Bridge were also closed for a while Wednesday because of ice falling from suspension cables.

The Tri-State area is dealing with bitter cold temperatures and gusty winds a day after snow squalls blasted the region.

Temperatures in the high teens combined with winds gusting up to 30 mph were creating wind chills around zero in most areas Thursday morning.

Highs for the day are only expected to reach the upper 20's.
