The last remnants of the weekend's storm will sweep through the Hudson Valley region Sunday morning, setting up a stretch of warmer days this week, the National Weather Service said.
Forecasts predict Saturday's storm will continue overnight into Sunday morning with the same mix of rain, freezing rain and snow.
Drivers should watch out for slippery roads, and visibility might be limited through the morning hours, News12 meteorologist SallyAnn Mosey said.
From there, temperatures in the lower Hudson Valley will rise to the mid-40s as the storm passes.
"It will be out of our area by late morning into afternoon," Mosey said.
Further north, near Poughkeepsie and Kingston, the rain and wintry mix could continue through the afternoon, depositing a potentially slippery slush on local roads.
Forecasts predict cloud cover through the rest of the day, parting by nightfall for a clear overnight. That will set the stage for a relatively warm, sunny Monday, with temperatures peaking at 45 degrees and a slight wind.
Rain is on the five-day forecast for at least three days this week, but forecasts predict the cold snap is over, at least for now, with temperatures possibly reaching a high of almost 50 degrees on Wednesday, the National Weather Service said.
