Monday's highs will be off by 20 or more degrees, with highs only reaching to the upper 30s to mid-40s for most areas.

Rain remains in the forecast for late tonight and Tuesday, with accumulations of 1 to 2 inches possible followed by a cold front, Griffin said. Rain chances this afternoon will remain low at 30%, but you may want to carry the umbrella for the chance of a couple of showers.

These winds will bring in cold Siberian air, dropping temperatures all day Tuesday.

Some model forecasts had teased the possibility of a coastal storm throwing back some more substantial snow into the cold air late Thursday into Friday, but we've never really bought into that idea.

"Warmer and wet next few days and a cold front Wednesday afternoon will make it colder towards the weekend", News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said. Fog shouldn't be as widespread but some patchy dense areas will be possible through sunrise as temperatures start off in the 60s. Rain amounts of around one-half inch are likely. Right now, for Friday, it appears a wave of low pressure will move north along a stalled frontal boundary well off the east coast.

Skies are expected to clear Wednesday as a brisk west to northwest wind ushers in a much colder air mass.

For a week, we've been talking about the colder-than-normal weather set to arrive by Thursday.

"By Friday the United Kingdom will be in an Arctic Maritime air mass with temperatures across the country staying in low single figures by day and below freezing by night". Rain developed early in the morning as this feature tapped gulf moisture.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and cool.
