A winter storm lingered over much of the northeast late last week. In New York City, it deposited 4 inches of dense, wet snow in Central Park. In the storm’s wake, however, Spring-like conditions swept across the area.
The city reached a high temperature of 55°F on Saturday and saw all of the recent snowfall melt away. Only two days earlier, we had a high of 38°F. Our normal high for this time of year is 47°F.
As pleasant as this spring preview has been for many winter-weary New Yorkers, forecasters expect to see cool conditions return by the end of the week.
