Spring may have sprung, but it feels more like December than April in parts of the tri-state.
A small storm system brought a quick hit of wet snow to the suburbs north of New York City and rain to the city, New Jersey and Long Island on Monday, according to Storm Team 4.
The Catskills and lower Hudson Valley weere expected to get 1 to 3 inches of wet snow from the system. The snow began falling during the Monday morning commute, making for a messy drive to work and school, Storm Team 4 says.
It was cold along the shore. A freeze warning was in effect for coastal Connecticut, southern Rockland, Westchester, northern Nassau, and Suffolk counties.
In the city and immediate suburbs, some wet snowflakes mixed with chilly rain showers. With a nasty day in the forecast at the ballpark, the Yankees' first home game was postponed until Tuesday.
After the rain, it’ll get cold Monday night in and around New York City, Storm Team 4 says. A freeze warning is in effect for all five boroughs, as well as Hudson, Essex, Union, and Nassau counties on Monday night.
The sunshine returns on Tuesday, but it’ll be breezy and chilly. Highs will struggle to reach the low 40s.
What’s more, the unseasonably cold weather will stick with us through the middle of the week, according to Storm Team 4.
It begins to get warmer on Wednesday, but April showers and warmer temps on Thursday and Friday mark the start to another turn in the weather, as temperatures head back down into the 40s this weekend.
