While New York City will escape the worst of the midweek spring blizzard, the storm will track close enough to bring snow, wind and more cold conditions.
High temperatures will be held to the 30s through Wednesday. A high in the lower 50s is more common this time of year.
While the storm delivering the snow will not evolve into a blizzard until after bypassing New York City, 1 to 3 inches is expected through Tuesday night.
Due to the effects of the stronger March sun, it will take until the evening and overnight hours for the snow to accumulate on roads. Most of the snow that falls during the day will be confined to grassy and elevated surfaces. Enough wind, snow and low visibility can occur to cause flight delays for a time at midweek.
Heavier snow amounts are expected across Long Island with 6 inches along the island's easternmost tip. If the storm strengthens quick enough and tracks close enough to the coast, far eastern Long Island could also face near-blizzard conditions.
Wednesday will be the coldest day of the week in terms of AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.
Temperatures are forecast to rebound to or above seasonable levels late in the week.
