Central Park’s green lawns are turned white, the mighty Hudson is overtaken by ice bergs and Lady Liberty stands resolute in amazing aerial photos taken a day after New York City was battered with a major snow storm.

The photos, which show the Big Apple turned into a frozen tundra, don’t look dissimilar to the fictional Manhattan that was frozen over in the apocalyptic blockbuster film The Day After Tomorrow.

While the snow stopped long ago, it won’t be melting anytime soon since the city is now dealing with a deadly drop in temperature thanks to a fresh blast of Arctic air.

Temperatures are only suppossed to reach a high of 19 today – making it even colder than when the storm hit on Thursday.

And it will remain cold throughout the weekend, with highs of 16 degrees expected on Saturday and 21 degrees on Sunday.

The bitter cold temperatures will be felt across the region, making temperatures feel as low as minus 15 degrees from Philly to Beantown on Friday, while residents of states like Maryland and Virginia shiver from temps ranging from 10 degrees to 15 degrees. Coastal areas in the Northeast may experience numbing single digits.

‘This is chilly, chilly stuff,’ Brian Hurley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland, said on Thursday.

    The temperatures referred to in the teens would be viewed as sunbathing weather in the Haliburton Highlands for the past couple of weeks.
