Steady rain associated with its leading warm front will overspread the entire tri-state area tonight, then become heavy at times from late evening into Saturday morning.
As the low moves into the area on Saturday, light rain will continue through the day. A trailing cold front passes Saturday afternoon, and it may take until late evening or overnight before the rain completely ends.
Mild conditions into Saturday should give way to brisk and colder conditions Sunday as the low moves into eastern Canada, with temperatures returning to near seasonal averages as winds shift out of the west. High pressure briefly building across on Sunday night will give way to another weaker low moving out of the Plains states for Monday.
With cold air remaining at the surface and warmer air moving in aloft, a wintry mix of precipitation is likely for the interior mainly Monday afternoon and night, with primarily rain for New York City and Long Island. Slippery conditions could be possible for the Monday evening commute north and west of the city.
