WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Are you feeling frigid from the bone-chilling temperatures experienced in the past few weeks across Westchester?
There's a a good reason for that. It wasn't just cold, and it wasn't just cold for February. The big chill across the area set a record for the coldest average monthly temperature at nearby official record-keeping spots in Bridgeport, Conn., and Islip, N.Y., according to the National Weather Service.
Is relief in sight? The answer may well yes and no at the same time. While the dangerous cold temperatures that have gripped the area are highly unlikely to return, colder than normal temperatures in March are predicted in the Northeast by Weather Services International.
