The wind diminished Tuesday but frigid temperatures remained across the Tri-State Region following sub-zero temperatures with gusty winds a day earlier.

Tuesday's forecast called for sunny skies with some clouds around late in the day. Highs were expected to reach near 29 degrees. with Northwest winds 5 to 15 mp. Lows overnight would reach near 26 degrees with south winds 5 to 10 mph.

Most actual temperatures were in the single digits and teens in New York City less than 24 hours earlier, but the wind chill brought the real feel forecast to sub- zero.

In Connecticut, utility crews braved bitterly cold temperatures and high winds Monday as they restored power to thousands of homes and businesses who had the lights knocked out during a weekend storm. 

The power restoration effort following the weekend storm turned deadly Sunday when an Eversource subcontractor was struck by falling tree in Middletown while working on a power line.

Another storm system was already developing over the Rockies that could blanket the same region with more snow by the end of the week.
