NEW YORK (PIX11) -- Spotty snow and icing is expected this weekend, mainly Sunday evening into Monday.

It will be overcast much of the time this weekend but precipitation will be intermittent and spotty. We can't rule out additional spotty snowflakes or ice pellets tonight.

The temperature has been slowly rising and is now at or above freezing in the City and coast; still climbing towards 32 inland so there may be a few slick spots, but that upward trend will continue overnight.

Even milder Sunday with a gray sky again and spotty light rain or a mix from time to time.

The problem starts Sunday night. This whole dreary mess will try to get better organized before moving off the coast. Most guidance (but not all-yet) indicate the precipitation will expand southward as cold air also drops southward. This could easily lead to a 6+" snowfall from the Catskills/ mid Hudson Valley/I-84 interior portions of CT.

However, the first push of cold air is more likely to be found at the lower levels, south of I-84 and even more so down towards the 287/TZB/Merritt/I-80 region. What does that mean? We can't focus on snow amounts immediately; we should start worrying about extensive icing again, similar to last week. Eventually, the upper levels cool down down and a few inches of snow could top off the nasty slick conditions on Monday.

Another round of bitter cold is expected later next week.
