The Big Apple will run out of snow this week, but gray skies are expected in the coming days.
After being battered by freezing weather in the last few weeks of January, temperatures are expected to remain in the 30s and 40s F for the next few days. meteorologists explained.
While temperatures continue to remain above average for this time of year, Sunday’s rain did not turn to snow, sparing New York City from more winter rain.
As the storm system passes, no rain is expected until Friday, when there will be a chance of light rain.
Also, no major changes are predicted in terms of temperature during the week, and the sky is expected to remain partly cloudy.
It was also predicted that clouds would clear over the weekend, and next Sunday would be cool but bright.
Even if this January ends with no snow and warmer than normal weather, winter can happen at any time because experts indicate that a polar vortex will occur in February.
“Cold weather will likely return to eastern North America by mid-February, a region where cold weather is shorter-lived,” reported Judah Cohen, VERISK atmospheric and environmental research scientist.
Cohen warned New Yorkers to remain alert, even with warmer temperatures later this month lasting into the first week of February. Freezing temperatures are expected to arrive soon.
“I think that during the second week of February, and even probably in mid-February, a high polar vortex is more likelyCohen added.
