Frigid temperatures gripping parts of the northeastern United States continued to slide downward on Saturday as the region struggles to cope in the aftermath of this week’s ‘bomb cyclone.’

Meteorologists studying weather patterns in the area say that wind chills in one part of New Hampshire were forecast to hit negative 100 degrees, in what the New York Times describes as an environment so unforgiving it ‘steals your breath and freezes your eyelashes.’

‘You can’t blink. The cold stabs your face and numbs your earlobes to rubber,’ the Times added. Weather experts say some areas in the region are colder than the surface of Mars.

Meanwhile, New York City is projected to experience its worst winter cold of the year, with temperatures expected to hit 3 degrees by night fall with a windchill between -10 and -20 degrees, according to NBC News.

Earlier Saturday, the National Weather Service issued a wind chill warning for communities in Western and Central Massachusetts, according to masslive.com, with temperatures expected to ‘feel’ as low as -25 degrees.

Experts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania also warned that the city for what may be ‘the coldest day’ in the area in a ‘generation,’ with wind gusts making the air feel as low as minus-12 in the city of brotherly love and minus-30 in The Poconos, NBC reported.

The frosty conditions come in the wake of meteorological phenomenon known as the ‘bomb cyclone,’ a low-pressure winter storm system that intensifies very rapidly with increasingly powerful winds.

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

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 reached a high of 19 on Friday – making it even colder than when the storm hit on Thursday.

The bitter cold temperatures have been felt across the region, while residents of states like Maryland and Virginia shiver from temps ranging from 10 degrees to 15 degrees.

‘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.
