NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A massive winter storm dumped 20 inches on parts of New England and looked set to cripple parts of the Midwest and Northeast on Friday as millions faced bone-chilling temperatures.
Winter storm warnings and advisories were in effect in at least 22 states, stretching from Chicago through the New York tri-state region into New England and affecting an area home to more than 90 million people.
The high temperature in New York City will be in the teens on Friday during the day and drop to between 5 and 8 degrees in the evening, with the wind chill making it feel well below zero.
