Did you see any snow flurries yesterday where you live? ❄ They were the result of leftover snow bands from upstate NY and PA. No snow expected today, but some of the coldest air this season means highs this afternoon may only reach the mid/upper-30s. Brrrrr! 🥶 #NYwx #CTwx #NJwx pic.twitter.com/etOO4m49Mj
