Old Man Winter is not over yet.
A strong nor’easter is expected for several days in the northeast during the first half of the work week, bringing strong winds and heavy rain – and possibly some snow To the big apple.
The storm began forming Monday morning off the coast of the Carolinas but will push northeast, bringing heavy rains to New York by afternoon.
As the storm advances toward Nantucket, cold air may make its way into the Big Apple and open the door to the possibility of snowfall, Fox Weather meteorologist Christopher Tate told The Post.
“It can be heavy at times if we switch because the storm is expected to have a lot of moisture with it. So if we switch to snow, we will likely see periods of moderate to heavy snow reducing visibility.”
Any snow that falls likely won’t stick as temperatures will remain above 32 degrees for the duration of the storm.
“New York is a great urban heat island which means the city is always much warmer than the surrounding area. So you know we probably won’t get any kind of massive snow,” Tate said.
The Fox Prediction Center predicts that between one and three inches of snow will be measured in Central Park if conditions are favorable enough for snow to fall during this week’s storm.
Warmer temperatures mean that people who drive to work on Tuesday morning are not likely to see ice or snow causing major problems on the roads. Areas north of Manhattan, where snow has a higher probability of sticking to the ground, may have some problems.
Tate said suburban residents in North Jersey, areas north of Yonkers and around Stamford have better chances of snow sticking to the ground and piling up.
Parts of western and northern New England in northern and central New York should see the heaviest snowfall. The amount of snow expected will decrease near Interstate 95, including Boston and New York City, where heavy rain is expected.
New Yorkers on Long Island are likely to see heavy rain as the storm intensifies Monday night.
There are currently coastal flood warnings in place for all areas of Long Island east of Queens.
During the height of the storm, there may be sustained gusts of up to 45 mph in both New York City and Long Island.
Strong winds may cause additional flooding, especially in those areas and in other low-lying areas.
The storm is expected to clear the area by the end of Wednesday, but the high winds will continue for several days, leaving the city in a state of freezing cold.
