There’s no need for him to fear frostbite. The temperature in Brooklyn has been a freakishly balmy 58 degrees since 9 a.m.

Photographers are wandering up and down the popular park, snapping scenic shots. Perhaps it’s time to play hooky and join them.

A word of advice: Wear a hat, or the insane humidity will make your hair very frizzy.

Just a few days ago, the “bomb cyclone,” AKA Winter Storm Grayson, dumped snow all over the place. Temps plunged into the single digits.

Now we’re in the grip of soggy spring-like weather.

Our fog’s so thick, it would make San Francisco proud.
