New York and the U.S. Northeast will get a taste of spring over the next couple days, followed by a reminder that winter’s not over.

High temperatures in New York’s Central Park will nearly touch 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) Tuesday and peak Wednesday at 65 degrees before plunging to 31 degrees late in the day as gusty winds push a cold front across the region, said Dominic Ramunni, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Upton, New York.
