Many folks in the Northeast enjoyed the warmest Christmas on record. Of course, this won't last forever.

Forecasters are calling for much colder temperatures early next week which will lead to frozen precipitation and snow across parts of New York and New England.

AccuWeather says the storm will arrive late Monday into Tuesday.

The Hudson Valley should see rain this weekend, followed by much colder air by Sunday night. This will allow precipitation to start in the form of snow, sleet or freezing rain.

Meteorologists predict that the precipitation will change from snow to ice to rain from parts of Pennsylvania into New England as milder air gets slowly drawn northward.

The Hudson Valley and New York City metro areas aren't expected to see too much wintry precipitation, however parts of northern New York state and New England could see as much as a foot of snow.
