Winter storm Wilbur to deliver expansive swath of snow from Northern Rockies to Great Lakes

Spring winter storm arrives tonight

The morning rain/snow ends by the end of the morning commute. Minor ice accumulations are also possible. The overnight low in the area was expected to bottom out at a frigid 28 degrees, well below normal and more than 40 degrees below the day's high.

The last time the NYC saw heavy snowfalls was more than a hundred years ago, on April 3, 1915, when the city was blanketed in 10 inches (25 cm) of snow.

According to data provided by Weather Underground, the record high was 83 degrees in 1963 and the record low was 15 degrees in 1985.

The temperatures have warmed up into the mid-30s and are expected to get a little but warmer as the day goes on.

TEMPERATURES UP AND DOWN: Temperatures rise through Wednesday, with low-50s for Tuesday and upper-50s for Wednesday. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 35. The mercury will only top out in the upper 20s and winds will be about 10 to 18 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 60%. This isn't going to turn into a major snowstorm, but once again a few areas could see light accumulation. The stronger spring sunshine along with the fresh deep snow will make you want to grab your sunglasses. Winds on Wendesday afternoon could gust over 50mph, which is enough to cause scattered power outages and tree limb damage.

Sunday night - A chance of snow. Expect widespread gusts 40 to 50 miles per hour, with gusts to 60 miles per hour through the interior.

A wintry mix begins early Tuesday morning. Chance of precipitation is 30 percent.

While this may be bad news for some, the current update calls for a coating or less with the northern interior region seeing up to two inches of snow.

Friday night: Partly cloudy, low around 13. East winds 5 to 10 miles per hour.

While many areas in the Northeast will be bracing for snow later this week, Minnesota will enter the weekend with frigid temperatures.

This does include the city of Billings and 3 to 6 inches of snow is expected with the possibility of local amounts getting up to 11 inches of snow.

Yesterday's high temperature of 48 degrees gave way to summer-like temperatures and occasional rain today.
