New York City area residents woke up to some bone-chilling temperatures.

National Weather Service meteorologist Tim Morrin says rush-hour temperatures ranged from around zero in White Plains and the Lower Hudson Valley to 6 degrees in Central Park.

A high of about 21 degrees is expected. The normal high is 38.

No major airport problems were reported.

Extra crews checked on rail signals and switches. De-icer and scraper trains combatted ice build-up on rails. Some subway trains had been stored underground.

More seasonal temperatures are returning on Tuesday — the mid-to high-30s.

Morrin says “a mixed bag of precipitation” is expected for Wednesday into Thursday.
