Much colder air and perhaps snowflakes are on the way for New York City Tuesday.

The city will experience its coldest days since the spring on Tuesday and Wednesday as arctic air blasts in and holds highs to the lower 40s.

Brisk winds ushering in the cold will create even colder AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures on Tuesday. The wind and cold will have many reaching for winter coasts and turning up their heat.

Tuesday night, Midtown will record its first subfreezing temperature of the fall.

While escaping its first snowstorm of the season, part of the the New York metro area could have its first snowflakes of the season, mixed in with rain Tuesday morning as the arctic air arrives.

The impending cold and snowflakes will serve as a reminder that the official start to winter is just around the corner.

As fast as the arctic air invades the United States, temperatures will quickly rebound later in the week.
