According to the National Weather Service, New York has been on somewhat of a cold streak. On Tuesday, Jan. 9, they tweeted out that the "consecutive day streak of temperatures below 32°F comes to an end today. Central Park saw 14 consecutive days below 32°F, which ranked 3rd most, JFK and LGA both saw 13 consecutive days, ranking 2nd and 3rd most respectively."
