Light snow fell Saturday as the New York area experienced a slight break from frigid temperatures before another cold front moved into the region.
An arctic cold front will move through the area Saturday night, and temps will fall sharply. Wind chills will be below zero in most of the area by Sunday morning.
Temperatures were in the 20s Saturday morning and the low 30s in the afternoon, and 2-4 inches of snow was expected to accumulate north and west of New York City. The city itself is expected to see less than an inch of accumulation.
A winter weather advisory was in effect for western and northwestern New Jersey and the western Hudson Valley through the afternoon. Snow showers and squalls reduced visibility, making for difficult travel conditions.
