Before Queens residents spring forward this weekend, they’ll need to dig out of up to 7 inches of snow.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter storm warning for New York City from 7:00 p.m. Wednesday to 7:00 p.m. Thursday. The storm is expected to bring 4 to 7 inches of  the white stuff.

Rain and sleet during the day Wednesday will change to snow overnight, according to NWS. The snow will keep falling on Thursday as temperatures drop to the low 20s by the afternoon. By about 7 p.m. the flakes will taper off.

Though the sun will return on Friday, temperatures will stay chilly with a high around 24 degrees.

But, as we turn our clocks ahead on Sunday and gain that extra hour of sunlight in the evenings, temperatures are also signaling that nicer weather is coming.

The next week should have highs in the 40s.
