Storms through the middle of the week will bring rain to the New York City area. However, there is a chance that storms later in the week bring some snow to the region.

Temperatures will be well above freezing through Wednesday evening, so no real problems from snow and ice are in store through then.

Just enough cold air will move in later Wednesday night and Thursday to support snow or a mix of snow and rain.

The problem is a storm may be too far offshore to tap lingering moisture and bring snow in the first place, let alone bring heavy snow.

If it were to snow with the third storm in the Northeast, chances are it would not be a major snowfall and the snow would be spotty in nature. meteorologists will continue to monitor the potential for snow late Wednesday night into Thursday, as well as from a fourth storm Friday night into Saturday.

The weather will be significantly colder this weekend, but not nearly as extreme as the arctic outbreak of a week ago.
