NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – After a frigid, unseasonable couple of days in the tri-state, warmer temperatures are expected to finish off the weekend—but colder weather, and potentially some wet snow, is in the forecast for the workweek.

Central Park hit 27 degrees Friday night, almost breaking the record of 24 degrees set back in 1976, AccuWeather says.

Other areas also nearly shattered their cold records. Islip tied the record low of 23 set in 1992 and JFK Airport tied the record low of 25 set in 1976. Bridgeport also tied its record low of 22 set back in 1971.

It was quite chilly Saturday, especially in the northwest suburbs, where temperatures were around freezing. Although it got into the low 40s in the city, temperatures were still well below the average for this time of year.

We get some relief on Sunday, when highs in the city will reach the low 50s with clouds and sunshine. The low Sunday night is 48.

Monday is even milder: highs will shoot into the upper 50s in the city under mostly cloudy skies. Lows will be in the upper 30s.

Although it isn’t too cold during the day Tuesday—highs will reach the low 40s in the city—temperatures will drop precipitously throughout the day.

It’s going to be bitterly cold Tuesday night, with a high of 23 degrees in the city and RealFeel temperatures near single digits.

It becomes increasingly windy and colder throughout the day Tuesday. AccuWeather says snow may fall later in the day, mainly north and west of the city, as a front moves in. The five boroughs will most likely see rain but could see a few wet flakes too.  

The cold continues Wednesday, when highs will be around freezing during the day and down into the low-to-mid 20s at night. Gusty wind will make the temperatures all the more brutal.

Bitter cold and snow are much more likely upstate and further up the East Coast Monday and Tuesday. AccuWeather predicts nearly 150 million Americans will be in subfreezing conditions Tuesday morning.
