New York - Brrr! It’s freezing outside.

The temperatures in New York City, its northern suburbs and Long Island are in the double digits but feel more like five below Wednesday.

Wind gusts are 15 to 20 mph.

The National Weather Service says scattered flurries are possible in the afternoon.

It says prolonged exposure to the arctic air can cause frostbite and hypothermia.

It advises protecting exposed areas by wearing hats and gloves and dressing in layers.

Fox 5 News says warming tents have been set up in the New Dorp Beach area of Staten Island, hard hit by Sandy. People can also get food and water there.

The deep freeze will continue into Thursday and Friday. There’s a chance of snow Friday afternoon and evening. Accumulations are expected to be minor.

I had to laugh when I saw the headlines which stated "Arctic temperatures". New Yorkers don't know what arctic temperatures are. It rarely, if ever, goes below 0 degrees fahrenheit in NYC. In my community, it is not uncommon for the temperature to go 20 degrees below 0 in the winter. Some communities have experienced temperatures even colder than that.
