Limited Rain, Snow Showers Possible Tuesday Before Midweek Warm-Up Brings Melt

This month is the eighth-snowiest February on record for the city, but with above average temperatures on the way for the foreseeable future, it's unlikely to climb any higher

What to Know

  • Some snow and rain showers are possible on Tuesday, but any snowfall totals aren't expected to have any impact
  • After the final showers move on, temperatures climb into the 40s and even reach 50 by midweek, bringing plenty of snowmelt to a region that has seen plenty of snowfall the past few weeks
  • It's already New York City's eighth-snowiest February on record, with at least one more shot at adding to the more than 25 inches that have fallen this month

After returning to the tri-state for a limited engagement Monday afternoon, some snow and rain showers are possible Tuesday before a midweek warmup brings plenty of snowmelt to the reigion

Roads that were slick and slushy after Monday's precipitation could become a little icy overnight, especially north and west of NYC. The snow and rain showers will come in the morning and could stretch into the early afternoon in spots, but their impact will be minimal as temperatures remain above freezing.

The larger impact will come after those spotty showers move on, as the region will finally get to thaw and see some of the accumulated snow melt away. With temperatures in the 40s and even hitting the 50s midweek, there's a good chance grass will be visible once again before the weekend.

That almost seems hard to imagine for the tri-state, which has been bombarded by with a cycle of snowstorm for weeks. That trend continued a bit on Monday, as Central Park collected another 0.4 inches of snow before turning over to rain by the afternoon.

With Monday's additions, this month is still the eighth-snowiest February on record with 26 inches.

While New York City and the immediate New Jersey suburbs weren't expected to get more than an inch on Monday, other areas did see somewhat substantial snowfall. One town in New York's Ulster County got five inches, while totals from throughout the tri-state between two and four inches were fairly common.

The next potential system -- one that may bring a wintry mix or rain -- comes to the region on Saturday. More rain is possible Sunday as temps climb above 50. Temperatures continue to hover in the 40s for much of next week as well.
