Freezing Temps Force Some to Cancel NYE Plans

NEW YORK CITY — Dangerously cold temperatures are causing some cities to cancel their New Year's Eve plans.

From the northeast even spanning down to Austin, Texas, professionals are warning of the consequences of staying out in inclement weather.

In Times Square, the forecast for the ball drop is 11 degrees with windchills below zero. 

But it still hasn't deterred some diehards from having New Years in New York. 

 "She made me wear like 4 layers. I can't really move, but I'm warm! Better than being cold!" Lou Andmasar, a Times Square visitor, said.  

"It's fantastic. I'm not a big hot person. I like the cold," Damin Saudi-Caruso, a New Yorker, said.

The coldest New Year's Eve in Times Square came in 1917 when it was one degree at midnight. 

This year's 11-degree forecast would tie for the second coldest.
