Intensely cold here at "solar-noon."

Went for a walk dressed otherwise, very warm.
I could not go 10 minutes outside before my cheeks felt they were getting close to the risk of injury.
I had on a very warm hat also covering my ears and I have a bit of a fullbeard.
For my body type, I would assume cold-injury to my cheeks would be imminent within 20 minutes without a scarf to cover them.

Current Conditions:

-13 C / 9 F
Windchill -25 C / -13 F
Humidity 72%
Dewpoint of -17 C / 1 F
NW winds at 44 km/h (27 mph), gusts at 65 km/h (40 mph)
Light snow (stray flurries in my neighbourhood)
Visibility 16 km (10 miles)
Ceiling 4000 ft (example of canada's wishy-washy metric usage )

A good portion of the country should be freezing below average tonight:

-15 F for Minneapolis
9 F for Chicago
14 F for Atlanta
25 F for NYC
26 F for Orlando
32 F for Miami


Idk how NYC manages to stay relatively "mild" in these scenarios.

It's because NYC is getting cloudy skies tonight while other places (including Florida) are getting clear skies, which give allow the temperatures to drop more. I found 22-23 as tonight's low for NYC (weather.gov). Found 21 for Western Suffolk (Long Island) and 25+ in Eastern Suffolk (Montauk at the eastern tip has a low of 28 tonight).

My town in Western Mass is going to 22 tonight as well. Cloudy skies.

I live inland, so the lows are predicted to be upper 20s.

This cold wave is definitely not "overhyped" like wavehunter said upper 20s in December is extremely rare here.

Do you have central heating/decent insulation/antifreeze/winter clothes etc? I can see how this is a big deal if you don't have winter stuff like that, never mind for flora/fauna/crops etc. Meanwhile here it's only likely to get to about 34 tonight, from a high of 39.

Looks like it might not even get above -10 C today. I usually don't intentionally go out on walks if I don't have to when its like that.

Thanks I should've figured that, but even still that seems a bit dramatic. I was looking at the Weather Channel, they're saying 28 F for Boston as well. Well I'm happy for the cloudy conditions lol.

I'm starting to hope we get a nice big winter storm sometime soon, if it's this cold then it should snow. I'm just bored with this weather and the storms in the Midwest are looking nice at the moment. However if Accuweather's 15 day forecast is any indication it looks we might not see any snow this month. It'd be nice to have a white Christmas.

While cloudiness does play somewhat of a role, I think the urban heat effect influences NYC's temperatures more than anything else, like I've said in other threads. My area is forecasted to get down to 13 F tonight under cloudy skies, which seems kind of odd.

NYC is just weird when it comes to temperatures lol.

Well my area is forecast to get down to 21 under cloudy skies. And as I said Eastern Long Island is predicted to have a low of 25 (75 miles from NYC) and Montauk (115 miles from NYC) is predicted to have a low of 28 miles. There is no heat island in Eastern Long Island or Montauk, much of the land is rural and /or surronded by water.

I think there's also some sorta east/west temperature trend going on.

For the rest of the week, the lowest temperature predicted for Montauk is 22, NYC is 19, the middle of Long Island 17-19.
