NEW YORK — The active pattern continues as several disturbances cross through the region for the next few days.
The second storm crosses through Tuesday night and while it will be a rain event for most, sections well inland will be cold enough for a mixed bag of snow and freezing rain. A winter weather advisory has been posted through early Wednesday morning for those areas.
Some rain will develop late Tuesday night in the city. For the highest spots north and west of the city, it will be cold enough for some snow. Eventually, those spots will change over to a light freezing rain and cause roads to be slick for the morning commute. Temperatures in the city will drop into the lower 40s.
Any lingering rain showers will taper off Wednesday morning, but the clouds will stick around as frontal boundary meanders to the south of the region. Temperatures will remain above normal with highs in the mid 40s.
Most of Thursday looks to be on the cloudy side as well, but a weak disturbance passing to the south could bring the chance of a light shower around during the day. Temperatures will be near 50 degrees.
We may finally get a break on New Year’s Eve as high pressure brings back the sunshine. The temperature will be around 50 degrees. As for the evening, clouds will be on the increase, but it will remain on the mild side as the clock hits midnight. Temperatures will be around the upper 40s as we ring in the new year.
A warm surge develops for the first day of 2022. Southwesterly winds could bring temperatures up toward record territory. The possibility of hitting 60 degrees will be on the table, however, rain will accompany the very warm temperatures.
The storm will be slow to exit keeping the risk of additional showers around on Sunday as well as Monday. Colder temperatures will slide into the region as well. Expect highs to be in the upper 40s on Sunday, then around 40 by Monday.
