The frigid temperatures and stinging winds that numbed the tri-state area for much of last week have moved out, but another storm system brought a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain, creating some icy headaches for Monday's evening commute.
Temperatures Sunday reached above freezing for the first time in seven days and meteorologists say it's expected to get warmer each day before hitting an April-like high of 60 degrees on Wednesday.
There was little to no accumulation with this storm, even in areas where the precipitation remains a wintry mix through Monday night. Untreated road surfaces could rapidly become slippery, along with overpasses and bridges, so drivers were advised to use caution.

Most precipitation moves out by Tuesday morning, giving way to mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid 40s that should provide a welcome reprieve to tri-state residents after last week's deep freeze.
By Wednesday, forecasters say temperatures could hit 60 degrees as yet another storm system moves in, bringing intense thunderstorms in the late afternoon.
Temperatures are expected to cool down a bit into the 40s on Thursday before dropping into the 30s again Friday as the week of seesawing weather patterns finishes up with the potential for flurries.
