The event, which benefits the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, was supposed to start at 1 p.m., with the plunge to take place at 2 p.m., but at around 11 a.m. organizers decided to pull the plug due to Sunday's weather conditions.

"It is too cold and windy, unfortunately," wrote a spokesperson for the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County in an email to Newsday.
