It's looking likely that New York City will dodge the latest spring snowstorm as recent forecasts from the National Weather Service now call for rain on Saturday morning.

Earlier forecasts predicted 2 to 4 inches of snow for Saturday.

There's a chance of rain Friday night, but the bulk of the storm is expected to hit New York City early Saturday morning. Showers will continue until around 8 a.m. and skies will remain cloudy for the rest of the day, with a high near 45 degrees, according to the NWS.

Sunday will brighten up a bit with mostly sunny skies and a high near 46.

But don't put the umbrella away just yet. Another storm system is predicted to move into the area Monday night into Tuesday morning, the NWS said.
