What to Know
- Near record low temperatures possible early Tuesday and Wednesday morning
- Both days warm up a bit while the sun is out, with temperatures floating around a cool 60 degrees
- Conditions get much warmer by the end of the week, with highs at or above 80 degrees on Friday
Hope those winter blankets haven't been packed away after last weekend's cold snap, as they might be needed around the tri-state for at least two more nights.
Briskly cold air from the northwest is set to rush back into the region again overnight, bringing temperatures back down near record lows again early Tuesday morning. Freeze watches and warnings, as well as a frost advisory, have all been issued for parts of New York and New Jersey, as temperatures look to dip down into the 30s and low 40s, according to Storm Team 4.
Despite plenty of sunshine during the day Tuesday, conditions will stay breezy and cool with highs only reaching the upper 50s at best (about 10 degrees below average for this time of year).
Tuesday night will be another near-record cold night, lasting into Wednesday morning. Temperatures will gradually begin to trend upwards through the end of the workweek.
Thursday looks to be mostly cloudy though a bit warmer, into the 60s. Friday is when the real warmup comes, as it could hit the low 80s throughout the region, Storm Team 4 says.
There's also a chance of thunderstorms returning on Friday, though any chance of precipitation leaves before Saturday, when it could be in the 70s and sunny.
The nice break doesn't last long however, as the threat for rain returns Sunday and lasts through Monday.
