Nearly two weeks into spring, winter-weary tri-state residents are still hoping for that first sustained period of seasonably warm, pleasant weather: It won't start soon, according to Storm Team 4.
While rain and snow showers tapered down Tuesday night, temperatures will drop below freezing in areas north and west of the city. With puddles and melting snow from the storm, there's a potential for black ice on the roads there.
Rain showers started popping up from west to east early Tuesday afternoon, mixing with wet snow north and west of the city. New Jersey got anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of snow.
The weather stays cool Wednesday with temperatures starting off in the mid-30s and Storm Team 4 forecasting a high just shy of 50 degrees, before bouncing up Thursday, with highs approaching 60 degrees amid sunny skies.
Temperatures are expected to surpass 60 degrees Friday, Storm Team 4 says, though the day will be marred by occasional rains that may linger into Saturday.
To date, March temperatures are running 4.3 degrees below average, according to Storm Team 4. The chilly month, which ends Tuesday, follows a February that saw temperatures 11.4 degrees colder than average and a January that saw temperatures nearly 3 degrees below average.
