BROOKLYN - Frigid temperatures remained in Brooklyn today after the borough?s first snowfall coated streets with flurries yesterday.

While the snow has been cleared, wind chills have brought a deep freeze to the borough with temperatures in the teens.

Residents said braving the cold is difficult and they hope it warms up soon.
