NEW YORK (PIX11) -- There’s a mixed bag of weekend weather in store for the tri-state, starting with a bitterly cold Friday.

After a night of wind chills that ranged from 0 to -5 degrees, temperatures are expected to remain frigid Friday with highs in the 20s and some inland areas reaching 30 degrees.

Wind chills will remain just above 0 throughout the day.

Temperatures will rebound slightly Saturday as the mercury pushes up toward 35 degrees and our next winter storm system moves toward the region.

As of Friday morning, the models show the storm reaching upstate New York Saturday afternoon. By Sunday morning, it will be snowing north of the city with the heaviest accumulations falling well upstate.

When the storm reaches the New York City metro area, it’ll start as rain and end as snow with some accumulations possible north and west of the city.

There is, of course, a chance that the storm’s path will change in the next two days. PIX11 News’ Weather Center is tracking its movement and will update you when we know more.
