A storm that moved through the Northeast early Sunday night left a fresh 1 to 2 inches of snow across the New York City area.
Frigid air is following the snow and will hold temperatures to the lower 30s on Monday. Highs between 26 and 30 F are in store for Tuesday and Wednesday with lows in the teens during the early morning hours.
Dry weather will hold these days, while waves of snow and ice threaten to severely impact travel and daily routines in the South.

However, there is also a chance that the Northeast escapes the storm's wrath or experiences a glancing blow if the storm heads out to sea after menacing the South.
