Time to pull out your shorts and sunglasses. 

After a fast-moving storm dumped several inches of wet, slushy snow across the region, temps in the high 40s on Sunday melted most of it by days end. 

A mild Sunday will kick off a stretch of unseasonably warm weather that is expected to soar into the 60s on Tuesday and near 70 on Wednesday. That could include record-setting high temps. 

But first, on the President's Day holiday, temperatures are expected in the low  50s with showers in the evening. 

The storm on Saturday night dumped about 5 inches of snow by midnight, but little to no accumulation was visible amid light rain.

But some areas saw much heavier snow. About 9 inches fell in Rockaway, New Jersey by midnight, while New City, New York, saw 7.5 inches and Monroe, Connecticut recorded 4.5 inches.
