UPDATED:

The calendar says the so-called "meteorological winter" ends March 1, but Mother Nature has other designs for cold-addled New Yorkers.

On Sunday, the city will see intermittent snow, which will be a rehearsal for the full-blown storm expected overnight into Monday. While the forecasts are still iffy, there's no doubt it will be a cold one: Monday's high will be a nippy 22 degrees.

A winter weather advisory is in effect from Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon and the Natinal Weather Service forecasts up to six inches of snow. If it pans out, we'll be close to the winter snowfall total record for a season. So far we're at 57 inches, and the record of 75.6 inches of snow was set in the winter of 1995-1996.
