Temperatures will rebound over the weekend around New York City, but it will not be a long-lasting trend.

After starting the day in the single digits, temperatures will reach the 20s during Saturday afternoon. With light winds, it should not feel as harsh as Friday.

A high in the lower 40s is forecast for Sunday.

Sunday will also feature the next chance of precipitation for the city. Odds favor mostly rain with the next storm, but the rain can freeze on colder surfaces for a time and some sleet can be mixed in as well.

The warmest part of the day Monday will be first thing in the morning. Temperatures will plummet during the midday, afternoon and night. Temperatures may be below freezing for the drive home Monday and will wind up in the single digits by Tuesday morning.

This bitter cold can make it dangerous to be outside for extended periods of time. If you plan on spending time in the outdoors early next week, make sure to wear the proper clothing to protect yourself from the bitter cold.
