Don't Put Those Mittens Away: Bitter Cold Coming After Snowfall

What to Know

  • A bitter cold is coming this week, with temps on Wednesday staying in the 20s
  • Blustery winds will make it feel even colder, so wear layers!
  • 3 to 7 inches of snow fell across the tri-state on Saturday, with areas to the northwest seeing the heaviest snowfall

Keep those scarves and hats handy: A bitter cold is heading to the tri-state just days after the region's first snowfall, Storm Team 4 warns. More snow may also come this week. 

The temperatures on Sunday are expected to reach the upper 30s, but a gusty west wind will make it feel like the upper 20s. 

The temps drop even more on Wednesday, with highs only reaching up to the upper 20s. The blustery wind will make it feel even colder. 

Thursday won't provide much of a warm-up, with highs in the low 30s. 

There's also a chance for snow or rain showers on Monday and Tuesday, although at this point it doesn't look like a significant storm, meteorologist Raphael Miranda said. 

The region could also see snow showers on Friday. 

The cold weather follows the region's first snowfall. Between 3 and 7 inches were recorded across the tri-state by the time snow tapered off late Saturday night.

More than 4 inches were recorded in Central Park, while 4.6 inches was measured at LaGuardia, 4.7 inches in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and 6.1 inches in Armonk, according to the National Weather Service.

The highest total was 7 inches, recorded in both Shelton and North Haven in Connecticut. See more snow totals here.
