This Valentine's Day is going to be as warm as our frosted, cynical hearts. 

And by warm, we mean potentially record-breaking cold... the kind of cold that takes your breath away when you step outside. 

New York City is expected to freeze over this weekend, with a Polar Vortex ushering in temperatures with highs in the low 20's. 

Yeah, you read that right. Saturday is expected to reach a high of 20˚F, and that's during the day. Sunday's temps are slightly higher, with highs of 22˚F. 

If you're heading out to party at night, make sure to bring a coat. An outfit lasts a night, but pneumonia lasts for weeks... 

NYC is look at temperatures in the single digits (4˚F) on Saturday night.  Sunday is only supposed to drop to 14˚F. Only. 


These numbers will be toying with the record books. 

The beginning of the week won't offer too much relief. Although the temperatures are expected to rise to the mid-30's, we're expecting a combination of snow, sleet, and freezing rain to start our work week. 

We're hoping this will keep the outdoor PDA to a minimum due to the fact that couples tongues could freeze together from a brief make out sesh. Then again, we're going to be too cold and bundled up to notice. 


Just do us (and yourselves) a favor: keep the clothes on until you reach the warmth of your own bedrooms, mmkay?
