What to Know
- A winter cool down is coming back to the tri-state after a mild weekend, Storm Team 4 says
- A cold front lingering offshore and could bring showers and a few snow flurries to the coast
- The New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert for Monday at noon
After a balmy weekend, it's time to pull out the parka again as another cooldown is on the way.
The New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert for Monday at noon. The snow alert means city agencies are on standby to clear snow and ice from the roads.
But Storm Team 4 says there is a light chance of snow Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning.
With a cold front lingering offshore, showers along the coast, and even the possibility of snow, is most likely across far eastern Long Island. A snow shower or two isn't out of the question for Tuesday afternoon, according to meteorologists.
Monday will see a high of 44 before the temps dip back down around freezing on Tuesday and Wednesday, Storm Team 4 says. Light accumulation is possible into Tuesday morning.
Friday is Groundhog Day and the forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies. That could be good news for anyone who is eager to see spring. According to legend, if the groundhog sees his shadow, it means another six weeks of winter weather.
