Umbrellas are advisable Tuesday, as rain is expected to last into the evening commute, the National Weather Service said.
The rain should fall mainly between noon and 5 p.m. The weather service tweeted shortly after 11 a.m. that showers were already moving into western portions of the region, with snow and rain expected inland and mainly rain expected at the coast.
Tuesday will also be gusty with a high of 42 degrees.
After that, the weather should alternate between fair and rainy or snowy.
Wednesday should be sunny and surprisingly warm. The daytime high should hit at least 47 degrees.
"Highs will be above normal levels for this time of year in the middle and upper 40s. It is possible for the New York City/New Jersey metro to reach the lower 50s," the weather service said.
Sunshine will dominate Thursday and Friday, though both days will be cooler. A daytime high of 41 degrees is expected on Thursday and 37 on Friday.
Saturday, however, has a 50% of snow and rain before 1 p.m., which then should turn mainly into rain, the weather service said. Highs are expected to be in the low 40s.
Sunday should be mostly sunny but that afternoon could see more rain, which could last into Monday. Possibly, the weather service said, the precipitation "may be mainly rain across the coast with a wintry mix inland."
Highs both days will be in the mid-40s, the weather service said.
