    Light snow coated the tri-state overnight, but Storm Team 4 says the white stuff won't stick around long thanks to warm temperatures expected to spring into the region next week.

    Light snow moved into the tri-state area overnight, coating sidewalks and grassy areas and making roads wet for Friday's morning commute. 

    Initial forecasts showed snowfall topping 1 to 2 inches in New York City, but most spots in the five boroughs saw just a light coating of snow on cars and mailboxes, with a slushy crust on untreated sidewalks and roads. 

    More significant snowfall was recorded in New Jersey, with Monmouth and Ocean counties getting more than 2 inches.

    Storm Team 4 says the powerful winds that have been pounding the region since Wednesday evening will continue through the morning, with some areas seeing gusts topping 35 mph.

    Cold temperatures will also stick around, and highs won't climb above the 40-degree mark.

    On Saturday, things look to be a bit warmer, in the 40s, but another low pressure system could bring more light snow to the region overnight into Sunday. 

    The warmup continues Sunday, when skies clear and the mercury climbs into the mid-40s. 

    Commuters will likely be able to ditch the coats for the workweek, Storm Team 4 says. The region could see highs flirting with the 70-degree mark by midweek.
