NEW YORK – Snow showers lingered into Monday morning and made for a slick commute to start the work week, but spring – which officially began on Sunday – is just around the corner, according to PIX11 News meteorologist Linda Church.

Expect a trace to an inch of snow in the five boroughs and northern suburbs, and about 1 to 3 inches of snow east of the city before this storm is done, Church said.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. for Suffolk, New Haven and Middlesex counties, according to the National Weather Service. That means those areas can anticipate light snow.

But the storm is moving out and should be clear of the area by early afternoon. Then, the sunshine appears.

Expect a high near 50 degrees Monday and the mercury keeps climbing, with temperatures in the 60s forecast for later in the week. On Wednesday, it’s possible for some parts of inland New Jersey to reach 70 degrees, Church said.
