While the worst of the cold is likely behind New York City for the balance of the winter, there are some storms worth monitoring through the first half of February.
Temperatures reached above the 30-year average on Sunday nearing 50. The average high and low for late January/early February is 39 and 27 F respectively. Average temperatures begin to trend upward during February.
The first storm will bring 4-8 inches of snow to New York City on Monday, causing travel problems for the morning commute and for folks in town for the Super Bowl flying out of JFK, Newark and LaGuardia.
Another storm during the middle of next week could be strong with heavy precipitation. Odds favor mostly rain with that storm, but just enough cold air may be around during the beginning of the storm to bring some ice and snow, especially north and west of the city.
A third storm is already being monitored for next weekend. For now with that storm the scale is tipped toward a similar outcome to the midweek event.
