One more day of warmth Friday before chilly temps return


NEW YORK — Temperatures soared to around 60 degrees once again on Friday. LaGuardia set a new record high for the second day in a row with temperatures topping out at 62 degrees. The previous record was 61 set back in the year 2000. Kennedy Airport was another spot where the previous record high was set. Heading into Saturday, much cooler air is on the way as a storm approaches the region. For areas well north of the city, it could be cold enough for a wintry mix to develop. A Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for Sullivan, Ulster and Dutchess Counties as a mixed bag of snow, sleet and freezing rain will be possible in addition to the rain.

Much of Friday night will be dry. Clouds will be on the increase as the storm approaches. The showers should hold off until the early morning hours of Saturday morning. Areas well north of the city could be dealing with a wintry mix, while the city and the rest of the region will be dealing with just plain rain. Overnight temperatures will drop to around 40.

On Saturday, it will remain cool with temperatures hovering around 40 all day long. Expect periods of rain during most of the day with the potential of a wintry mix continuing across extreme northern sections. A break may develop in the afternoon, but additional precipitation develops in the evening as a cold front crosses through the region. Once that passes, we will be able to dry out, but the chill will remain.
As far as accumulations go, perhaps 1 to 2 inches of snow will be possible for the highest spots. A glazin of icing will be a possibility for spots well north. The vast majority will see roughly a quarter inch of rain along coastal sections, to a half inch to the north. 

Sunday will feature a blustery northwesterly wind. Despite the mostly sunny skies, it will feel more like the upper 20s and lower 30s due to the gusty breeze. 

Heading into next week, it looks to remain dry with temperatures climbing from the lower 40s on Monday to the upper 40s by Tuesday.
