Colder-than-average temperatures that will continue through the weekend and all of next week could result in snow showers followed by a wintry mix in mich of the Hudson Valley early next week.
There is a chance of snow showers before noon Super Bowl Sunday north of I-287. No accumulation is expected.
It will be a mostly cloudy, brisk day with a high near 40, but wind-chill values between 20 and 30 degrees.
Monday will be mostly sunny with a high again near 40.
A winter storm described as "significant" by AccuWeather.com is expected to impact the area overnight into Tuesday.
The storm's strength will be determined by the magnitude of wintry precipitation, wind and thunderstorms, as well as the extent of rain and warmth, AccuWeather said.
"If cold air holds its ground for a time, a significant amount of snow and ice can occur over interior locations of the Northeast," said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist John Gresiak. "If cold air gives up easily, drenching rain will sweep rapidly northward, and there could be problems such as urban and poor drainage area flooding."
A wintry mix is expected to move into the area after 1 a.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
The precipitation is expected to change over to rain in southern parts of the Hudson Valley after 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Points farther north, including Northern Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess, could see a wintry mix continue through the morning into Tuesday afternoon before the temperature climbs to a high in the upper 30s.
It is too early to predict possible snowfall accumulation amounts.
Rain is likely Tuesday night and there is a chance of rain Wednesday.
