On the first day of Spring, weather weary New Yorkers have nothing to smile about – because its snowing.
The National Weather Service predicts there could be up to 4 inches of snow on Friday, the first day of spring.
The snow started falling midday and likely stop late in the evening, but not before accumulating a possible 4 to 7 inches. According to National Weather Service, the accumulation on roadways will be likely be less than that.
That’s the bad gloomy news for today – On the bright side (sob), temperatures will be in the 30s, so it won’t be as bitter cold as it has been. And then on Saturday, it will likely be sunny with temperatures that could reach 46 degrees.
The normal temperatures for this time of year are generally around 50. If the current trends continue, then March will likely go down in the record books as being colder than average. That said, February 2015 was the third-coldest February on record.
