LI Now: Jan. 7, 2014 Live

Welcome to Newsday's LI Now live post for Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014. 

Here's what you need get the day started, Long Island. Follow along throughout the day for updates.

TRAFFIC  AND WEATHER

Yeah, it's cold outside. Tuesday will be mostly cloudy and bring a high of 18 with a windchill of as low as 11 below. Winds will be 25 to 30 mph, with gusts of up to 40 mph.

The weather has the Long Island Rail Road on alert. The extreme drop in temperature poses a particular threat to the LIRR's steel rails, which are known to break during sudden and extreme drops in temperature, officials said.

The LIRR will also try to keep its customers warm by leaving station waiting rooms open round-the-clock for the rest of the week.

On the roads, no major incidents are being reported.

ON THE COVER

The head of Nassau's financial control board has asked County Executive Edward Mangano to rescind $800,000 in raises and benefits awarded to appointed, nonunion employees over the past year despite a three-year wage freeze imposed by the board, writes Celeste Hadrick.
