NEW YORK (PIX11) – Showers will taper towards daybreak as the storm departs to the northeast. There could even be a few rumbles of thunder as the cold front passes later this evening. Generally, rainfall amounts will be on the light side with amounts as high as a third of an inch possible.

Behind the storm, milder Pacific air moves in just in time for the start of spring. Temperatures are expected to jump into the 50s by the afternoon. By the way, the Vernal Equinox occurs at 12:57pm. The mild air stays in place through at least Saturday before a cold front passes late in the day signaling a downward trend in temperatures.

By Sunday highs will be decent, albeit cooler with highs in the upper 40’s. It won’t be until Monday when the full chill is back with temperatures struggling to reach 40 in the afternoon.
