With temperatures at or below freezing in some areas early Monday and a coastal storm moving into the region, we cannot rule out freezing rain and sleet.

Even though the center of the storm will remain out at sea, there is still a chance of flooding as the storm moves northeast.

In New York, a winter weather advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. Monday for Dutchess and Orange Counties, until 11 a.m. for Delaware, Otsego and Sullivan Counties, and until 12 p.m. in Ulster County.

While in New Jersey, a winter weather advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. for Western Passaic, Morris, Sussex and Warren Counties.

The National Weather Service has also issued a coastal flood advisory until 2 p.m. for Southern Nassau County, Brooklyn and Southern Queens, and until 4 p.m. in Southwest Suffolk County.

A coastal flood advisory is in effect in New Jersey until 4 p.m. for most of the areas along the coast.

We can expect mostly cloudy skies Monday afternoon with scattered showers becoming heavier toward the evening.

As the storms continue to pull away, expect gusty winds.

Finally, sunshine will return on Tuesday with near normal highs. Expect another bump up in temperature readings later in the week with scattered showers on Friday.
