The first few days of March call for cold temperatures with a chance of snow, but according to meteorologists, that will not last long.

The spring forecast for the Hudson Valley looks to be warmer than average with  about the normal amount of precipitation. The Weather Network says that there is a chance for higher than average precipitation amounts near New York City and the coastal areas, as a series of coastal storms could be possible.

Of course, this probably doesn't comes as too much of a surprise as the Hudson Valley has had one of the quieter winters in recent times. Much of this is due to the powerful El Nino, which battered the west coast with constant storms, yet brought milder weather to the east coast
