New Yorkers got through the extreme cold weather for which Governor Kathy Hochul issued an alert on Saturday. Residents did fine. Or, for Buffalo Bills fans, better than fine as the team ignored frigid temperatures on the way to a 47 -17 win over New England on Saturday night.

But now, with temperatures easing, emergency response officials are monitoring a snowstorm that could bring heavy falls across several regions. Coastal flooding, pushed by easterly winds, threatens downstate areas.

While Roosevelt Island and New York City should miss most, if not all of the snow, a high wind warning for overnight projects steady winds around 20 to 30 miles per hour with gusts up to 55 miles per hour.

The entire New York harbor is under a Coastal Flood Watch from 4:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. on Monday.

The forecast includes a Winter Storm Warning issued for Upstate and Western New York with snow accumulations of a foot or more.

Forecasters expect calmer weather for the rest of the week with the next chance of snow on Saturday.
