BROOKLYN - Brooklyn saw a high of 50 degrees on Monday, but Tuesday will see temperatures do an extreme drop into the single digits.

Meteorologists say the high tomorrow will be around 6 degrees, but it will feel more like minus 15 degrees due to the wind chill.

Doctors advise anyone heading out in the bitter cold tomorrow to dress in layers and make sure to cover your fingers, face and head to prevent frostbite.

The melting snow could also be hazardous as it turns to ice during the cold snap and drivers are advised to be careful.
