Forecast: Chance for an inch of snow Tuesday, record cold possible WednesdayPosted: Updated:
The season's first snow and some record cold are due in New York City on back-to-back days this week.
The storm arrives Tuesday, bringing precipitation that will transition as temperatures drop through the day. It starts out with early morning rain that's expected to transition to a wintry mix by around midday. As temps turn colder later in the afternoon, the mix is expected to change to snow.
Some minor accumulations of up to about an inch are possible, with a chance for slightly more in northern portions of the city.
The storm is expected to have moved out by around 3-4 p.m., but roads may remain slick during the evening commute, making for some slow going.
The precipitation will taper off Tuesday night, but it will be cold and windy with lows in the 20s and frigid wind chills could make the temps feel even lower.
Wednesday will be windy and bitterly cold under a mix of sun and clouds. A few stray flurries are possible. Highs will be near 35 degrees with wind chills in the teens.
Thursday and Friday will see a return to temperatures in the upper-40s.
