The temperature roller-coaster ride will continue into St. Patrick's Day for the New York City area.

High temperatures Monday are only forecast to reach the middle 30s after hitting 58 on Saturday.

The city is forecast to stay dry though as a snowstorm slides just south of the area to kick off the week.

"It's the typical roller-coaster ride of March," AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek said. "March is notorious for huge temperature swings."

New York City's normal temperatures this time of year are highs near 50 during the day and a low in the middle 40s at night.
