While it may finally feel like winter outside after some curiously warm days this season, the first weekend of winter still has yet to bring snow to New York City.
Today, the current temperature is 39 degrees, though it feels like 31 degrees. It’s still a bit windy, with winds blowing from the west-southwest at 14 mph and gusting up to 25 mph. Currently, the sky is mostly cloudy.
Expect a high of 41 degrees this afternoon as clouds depart, revealing a mostly sunny sky. Through Sunday night, the sky will remain clear, and we’ll have an overnight low of around 29 degrees.
Monday, Christmas Eve, will have a high of 29 degrees, and there is a 40 percent chance of rain showers in the evening. The rain may give way to snow showers at night as the temperature drops to 35 degrees, though no accumulation is expected—meaning a white Christmas may not be in the cards this year.
