Temps Expected To Dip Into 20s By Night

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Tri-State Area residents could wake up to a cold blast of air and snowflakes Tuesday morning.

“There’s some snow getting close, and I think we will be seeing some of our first snow flurries for a lot of you around the area,” CBS 2 meteorologist Lonnie Quinn said at 11 p.m. Monday.

While the band of snow is expected to pass over the city between 4 a.m. and 10 a.m., Quinn said some flurries will linger around as late as 1:30 p.m. on the eastern end of Long Island and in Ocean County, N.J.

The wet snow is not expected to accumulate on the ground. No area should receive more than an inch, Quinn said.

The snow will be followed by frigid temperatures. The high will be around 41 degrees in the city, along with winds of about 15 mph throughout much of Tuesday, according to the forecast. By night, the low will dip to 25 to 30 degrees, but feel closer to 20 with the wind chill.

Wednesday is expected to be similarly cold before the temperature climbs back into the 50s Thursday.
