NEW YORK (AP) - An Arctic cold front is ushering in some of the coldest weather that the Northeast has seen in two years.
      
The front will bring bitter cold late Sunday afternoon through Monday morning as a high-pressure area builds over New England. This will translate into frigid daytime highs of about 10 to 30 degrees below average.
      
The coldest spots in New England will dip to less than 30 degrees below zero, with the wind chill expected to drop to 51 below zero in some places.
      
The National Weather Service says the high in New York City will be 24 on Sunday, but it will feel more like 3 to 7 above zero with the wind chill factor.

The weather service is predicting a high of 19 on Monday. That would be the coldest it's been in New York City since Jan. 16, 2009, when the high was 16.
