Yesterday's sub-zero temperatures kept us happily locked inside, keeping warm by donning at least three pairs of thermal Bro shorts. But New Yorkers are in for an even more frigid Valentine's Day: temperatures in Central Park hit below zero this morning, making this the coldest Valentine's Day in NYC history, even colder than that time you tried to convince your partner that riding a bus was an acceptable romantic gesture.

The last time it was 0 degrees in NYC was January 19th, 1994. The National Weather Service might be a little too excited about this development:

Temperatures dropped as low as -1 degrees as of 8 a.m. this morning (with the wind chill factor making it feel like -18 degrees outside), shattering the previous February 14th record of 2 degrees set in 1916. The NWS's wind chill advisory is still in effect this afternoon, with wind gusts that could reach 45 MPH. But hey, at least now you can serenade your loved one with "Baby, It's Cold Outside," and somewhat justify the otherwise creepy lyrics.

On the plus side, the temperatures should climb up into the teens later today, and will be in the 30s by Monday, with the possibility of an inch of snow during the day. Then on Tuesday, we are expected to get a blast of spring weather: "The unfortunate thing about this mild weather on Tuesday is that it’s not going to be sunny and 55, it’s going to be rainy and windy and 55. But I doubt too many people will complain about it,” said Accuweather senior meteorologist Tom Kines.

And hopefully you won't let wind chills get in the way of some frosty romance. Mayor de Blasio certainly isn't—he sent some lovey-dovey Tweets to the First Lady, messages which seem especially sweet after trying to imagine either of our previous two mayors making romantic gestures (shudder) to their partners:

Anyway, hopefully everything goes smoothly today.
