If you haven't already, you might want to pull out that parka.
That's because Storm Team 4 says that Old Man Winter's opening salvo is expected to bear down on the region this week, bringing frosty temperatures, the season's first flurries and other wintry weather by the weekend.
The weather begins to change over from Monday's clear conditions to rain by Tuesday. Storm Team 4 says the region should see drizzles and spot showers through most of the day. But by the evening commute, a cold front will bring downpours through most of the evening.
A coastal flood advisory will go in effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday and last until noon. Click here for the up-to-the-minute weather alerts.
Behind that wet weather, the temperatures will plummet into the 20s and 30s overnight Tuesday.
The mercury won't climb back up above the 50-degree mark again for the rest of the week, with highs topping off in the mid-40s in New York City on Wednesday and Thursday. Over the weekend, temperatures will be in the 30s and low 40s.
And on Friday and Saturday, Storm Team 4 said a forming system could glance the tri-state, bringing the possibility of light flurries or a wintry mix.
Next week could be even colder. Storm Team 4 forecasts the temperatures at the start of the next workweek to stall out in the low to mid-30s.
