After reaching 60 degrees in Central Park on Saturday, temperatures began to shift sharply toward freezing. It will be volatile weather for the next two days. This means hats, gloves and scarves at a minimum.

Gov. Kathy Hochul warned of a “dangerous storm” when she announced that the NFL playoff game between the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers would be postponed from Sunday to Monday.

Residents of the county that includes Buffalo were told to stay off the roads starting at 9 p.m. Saturday, with forecasts calling for 2 feet or more of snow and wind gusts of up to 65 mph.

Sunday looks cold and windy all day long – think what real winter feels like outside. Wind chills should be in the 20s most of the day. And… there is a chance of snow around midday.

A blizzard can produce rapid snowfall that greatly reduces visibility and can result in a quick inch of snow falling in places where it is cold enough.

Near-freezing temperatures return Sunday night and could bring a lot of ice as flooding has been a problem in recent days. Temperatures will drop Monday morning with wind chills in the low teens or single digits.

Along with that wintry feeling comes the risk of possible snowfall. At this point, the forecast is for another chance of snow on Tuesday, perhaps an inch or two.

River flooding and coastal concerns

Although the rain has stopped, New Jersey still faces an ongoing risk of flooding through the end of the week.

Most flood-prone rivers in the Garden State receded amid a dry day Thursday, reducing their risk. However, the Passaic River is expected to remain at major flood stage for several days, thanks to another round of rain overnight into Saturday.

Another half to an inch and a half of rain fell overnight, threatening to exacerbate the risk of river flooding in areas still soaked by Tuesday’s storm. High winds also arrive late, with gusts likely reaching 50 mph down the beach.

Gov. Phil Murphy warned that flooding this weekend could be worse than last month on Sunday. Check the latest severe alerts here. Wind warnings have also been issued, with strong gusts expected.
