As we mentioned yesterday, today is going to be cold and blustery, thanks to an Arctic front. According to the National Weather Service, wind gusts of up to 47 mph will make the 26-degree weather feel like it's just 9 degrees this morning!

With the strong winds, the Department of Buildings is asking builders and property owners to secure their construction sites and buildings. WCBS 2 reports, "The Buildings Department will be performing random spot-check inspections of construction sites around the city" and that suggestions include "Tie down and secure material and loose debris at construction sites," "Secure netting and scaffolding," and "Suspend crane operations and secure crane equipment."
