The spring fling that has marked the week weather wise will come to an abrupt end as the final workweek of 2015 starts Monday.
After most locations in the area enjoyed a record warm Christmas Eve, another record-breaking day for warmth could be in store for Sunday with a high temperature around 60 degrees possible with showers likely.
Then comes the blast of winter.
A storm system that dumped as much as a foot of snow in parts of the southwest will approach the area from the south Monday night.
The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook that includes Northern Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Dutchess.
The advisory calls for the potential for an accumulating wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain Monday night into Tuesday before the transition to rain on Tuesday.
"The probably of 6 inches of snow is slight at this time," the National Weather Service said, "but the first accumulating wintry mix of the season has the potential cause a hazardous Tuesday morning commute."
