First Freezing Temps To Hit From Harlem To Hollis

The coldest air so far this season is headed for New York City later this week. Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing on Friday with the cold air lingering through Saturday.

But you have some time before you need to break out the hat and mittens: the work week starts off unseasonably warm and wet. The high will approach 70 Monday. Showers and possibly a thunderstorm are in the forecast Patch reports.

“Temperatures will be well above average on Monday ahead of a cold front approaching from the west,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Steve Travis said.

By the time Thursday rolls around, though, an arctic front “will be knocking on the door,” across the Northeast, the National Weather Service says.

Temperatures will fall off dramatically Friday. In New York City, the National Weather Service predicts a low temperature of 31.

The bitter cold air will pass by the following week, with daytime highs in the mid-50s. It will stay chilly at night, however. Lows in the 30s are predicted throughout the extended forecast.

Here is the National Weather Service’s forecast:
