New York City is set to see more snow on Friday, the first day of spring.
Friday may be the first day of spring, but don’t pack your winter boots away just yet.
New York City could see up to 2 inches of snow on Friday as a cold front brings temperatures down into the 20s, according to forecasts from the National Weather Service.
The chilly blast began Wednesday morning, when parts of the city saw scattered flurries. Artic air will across the Northeast throughout the day: highs won’t break 30 degrees in much of New England, The Weather Channel reported.
The winter system will continue into Thursday, dropping New York’s lows into the mid-20s overnight. Throughout Friday — the spring equinox and the official first day of spring — the storm will dump between 1 and 2 inches of snow on the city.
New England will also see snow, including Boston, which has already set a record for snowfall this year. The same storm will dump a wintry mix on Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Delaware and New Jersey.
The cold weather will last through the weekend, forecasters predicted. Northern New England could see even more snow on Saturday and temperatures will stay in the 30s on Sunday in New York.
