    NYC Turning Milder Before Dangerous Cold Blast

    By By Kristina Pydynowski, senior meteorologist

    A brief surge of milder air through Monday morning will be followed by a dangerous cold blast in New York City.

    New York City will escape the worst of the snowstorm that is taking aim at Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit.

    The track of the snowstorm will instead lead to a brief rebound in temperatures and some rain for New York City through Monday morning.

    Also accompanying the rain will be areas of potentially dense fog that will lead to slow travel for motorists and possible flight delays.

    Temperatures will return to the 40s into Sunday night after an icy start to the day, then continuing rising to the 50-degree mark Monday morning.

    Freezing rain and drizzle earlier Sunday caused the brief closure of JFK Airport and many delays at LaGuardia. There were even reports of planes skidding off of icy runways.

    Slick spots will once again be a concern for motorists and residents as the snowstorm's cold front sweeps through and ushers in dramatically colder air.

    Temperatures will plunge from 50 F Monday morning to the lower 30s late Monday afternoon and evening, causing any standing water on untreated roads and sidewalks to turn icy. The invading cold air will also cause the rain Monday morning to end as a little snow.

    Lows in the single digits Monday night, highs in the teens on Tuesday and dangerously colder AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will force those in New York City to bundle up to avoid enduring frostbite or hypothermia.
