Colder weather for New York City this week will lead to episodes of snow.

Indications are that winter will be in no hurry to leave. Waves of arctic air and the polar vortex sinking southward will make for a cold end to February and start to March.

Wednesday through Saturday, temperatures will then struggle or fail to reach the freezing mark. A high close to 45 F is more common in New York City this time of year.

Brisk winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

After a few snowflakes on Tuesday, a storm could bring a coating to an inch or so of snow and travel delays on Wednesday. Additional weak systems could bring spotty snow on Thursday and Saturday.
