Morning Brief: January 7
Be sure to bundle up for the next few days because yesterday was just a taste of the freezing cold weather to hit the country in the next few days. With wind chills, it could feel as cold as 25 below in some northern suburbs in the tri-state area. The mid-west is going to be hit even harder. Here in New York, temperatures aren't expected to reach above freezing until Sunday. Mayor de Blasio's urging New Yorkers to prepare for the cold. So if you can, this'll be a good week to stay in and catch up on some Netflix, and avoid the outside.
