    What to Know

    • The tri-state area will face brutal wind chills through the day

    • A light wintry mix will change over to rain Tuesday night into Wednesday morning

    • We're in store for another temperature shift, with the mercury expected to soar to the 50s by mid-week

    Temperatures were expected to warm slightly Wednesday after days of brutally frigid weather. 

    Storm Team 4 says another system approaching the tri-state will touch down on Tuesday. Highs will reach the upper 30s by the afternoon -- relatively comfortable compared to the near-zero wind chills reported over the weekend and on Monday. 

    Though most of the day will be dry, some showers will be possible before the end of the evening commute. A light wintry mix or snow is possible before a complete switch to rain Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, according to Storm Team 4. Snow will stay in chillier areas further inland. 

    Temperatures will do a complete 180 on Wednesday as milder air moves in along with rain -- highs are forecast to surge into the 50s. It will be windy at times throughout the day as the storm rolls through. 

    The work week will end on a high note with temperatures hovering around the low 50s and a small chance of a spotty shower.

    It was ice-cold for the third straight day Monday as tri-state residents continued to dig out from the weekend storm that saw more than a foot of snow dumped on parts of Long Island.

    By noon, the mercury had only climbed to 20 degrees in Central Park -- a comparatively balmy 22 degrees at LaGuardia -- though forecasters said blustery winds made it feel closer to the single digits or below.
