Weather Update: Deep freeze eases its grip

NYACK - The arctic weather that had most of the country in sub-freezing temperatures is beginning to ease its grip today.

News 12 meteorologist Brysen Van Eck says it’s over 10 degrees warmer than it was yesterday when temperatures felt like -20 degrees. Van Eck says the biggest difference from yesterday is that a brutal wind, which gusted up to 45 mph yesterday, has died down.

Van Eck warns that is will still be very cold with 'feels like' temperatures around zero and that people need to cover all extremities when going outside.

The relative warming trend will continue tomorrow with high temperatures reaching 30 degrees and into the 50s this weekend .
