The northeast began feeling the cold Sunday night after the arctic blast swept into the Midwest from the north and moved into the region, Accuweather reports.
Monday’s high temperature will be just above 20 degrees with gusts of west wind up to 33 mph and a 30 percent chance of precipitation, according to the National Weather Service.
The Weather Channel says the windchill will leave Ithaca feeling around 10 degrees all day.
The weather isn’t expected to let up any time soon.
The weather service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Tompkins and surrounding counties Tuesday, saying that up to two inches of snow is possible. A 60 percent chance for snow is expected in Ithaca Tuesday.
High temperatures will stay below freezing until at least Thursday, with low temperatures in the mid-teens, the weather service says.
So far in January, despite above average temperatures Ithaca has seen since lately, there’s been 1.6 inches of snow recorded by the Northeast Regional Climate Center. This time last year, just over half an inch of snow had fell on the city.
