We have one more cold night before a brief warmup occurs. A freeze warning has been issued for Staten Island, while a frost advisory has been posted for other parts of the city and surrounding suburbs as temperatures will drop into the low to mid 30s during the overnight hours of Tuesday night. Temperatures will then start to moderate very nicely through Thursday, but a cold front will bring rain, then it will cool down for Friday and Saturday.
Skies will be mainly clear Tuesday night as temperatures drop into the low to mid 30s in the city. Surrounding areas will go down into the 20s. The winds will be on the light side, so the wind chill will not be a factor compared to the previous few nights.
Winds will start to shift more southwesterly on Wednesday. That will help bring temperatures up into the upper 50s during the afternoon.
The warming trend will continue into Thursday with highs climbing into the mid to upper 60s. Late in the day, skies will cloud up as a cold front starts to move into the region. Showers will develop during the evening hours, but it should taper off during the wee hours of the morning.
The winds will shift back to the northwest and that will bring down the temperatures once again. A gusty breeze will develop and that will keep temperatures in the 40s all day on Friday and Saturday.
By Sunday, the winds will ease, and that should help bring temperatures back into the low to mid 50s.
Monday will feature temperatures in the mid to upper 50s, but another cold front will bring scattered showers, then cool temperatures down into 40s through the middle part of next week.
