tonight's lows will be in the teens. not too bad. the next night we're expecting lows in the single digits across the area. the winds will be the major factor through the afternoon tomorrow and into tomorrow night. the national weather service has issued windchill warnings and windchill advisories for the entire tri-state area. starting about 3:00, 4:00 in the morning up to the hudson valley as the cold front works through and later timed as things work its way downstate across the region. tomorrow night, windchills from 15 to 40 below 0. that's below 0 up towards the hudson valley in extreme northwestern new jersey. it will be 10 to 20 degrees below 0. that's dangerously cold. this is expected for tomorrow evening right into sunday morning. sunday morning's low is forecast to be 0. that will break the previous record of 2 set on february 20th. the coldest air was on the 5th when the temperature was 11.
6:02 pm
temperature below 0 was 1994 on the 19th of january where the temperature was at minus 2. therefore we haven't seen cold air like this in place for some time. i think this is going to be a shocker for a lot of folks, especially after the mild winter we had. november, december was nice. recently we had 60 degrees. ernie: this is brutal. >> fortunately only short-lived. ernie: thank you. we should tell you when it gets this cold it triggers code blue warning for the city. it goes into effect when temperatures drop below 32 and it means sherlt -- shelters are open for anyone in need. last night 232 checked into city shelters. >> also in the news, fallout from the guilty verdict of now former nypd officer peter liang. the jury delivered a guilty verdict last night. today liang's partner was kicked

6:05 pm
