NEW YORK (AP) - The National Weather Service is reporting it is only 14 degrees in New York City, making the New Year's celebration in Times Square among the coldest on record.
The coldest-ever ball drop was in 1917, when it was only 1 degree outside. In 1962, it was 11 degrees. And in 2008, it was 18 degrees.
Revelers were already lined up hours before the celebration Sunday, braving the cold to catch a glimpse of the glittering crystal ball that falls at midnight.
Mariah Carey will perform again on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve," hosted by Ryan Seacrest, after a bungled performance last year.
