According to Storm Team 4, steady snow and rain showers arrived early Tuesday. Temperatures were initially cold enough for at least some snow to mix in across much of the area. But precipitation quickly changed to all rain across New York City, Long Island and Jersey Shore as temperatures rise into the 30s.
The best chance for any snow accumulations will be north and west of the city, with accumulations up to an inch, with a bit more in the highest elevations. By about 5 a.m., the flurries and rain drops were moving out of the region.
Another round of rain showers return Tuesday evening into Tuesday night with overnight lows in the mid to upper 30s.
Cold and blustery weather returns by the end of the workweek, but Storm Team 4 says it's expected to stay dry and have more sun each day. There's the potential for a coastal storm this weekend, which Storm Team 4 is tracking.
