The start of May is just days away, but a stubborn storm system is bringing a blast of winter to the Northeast on Monday.

Several inches of wet snow is forecast to fall across the higher elections of New England through Monday night as a slow-moving storm system moves away from the Northeast.

"We had snow upwards of a foot in upstate New York this weekend," Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean said Monday on "Fox & Friends." "It is cold enough for snow over parts of New England today, so below-average temperatures for the Northeast."

"The storm will be in no rush to leave as it meanders off the Northeast coast on Monday and will keep spotty showers around for one more day across the region," the WPC said.

Below-average temperatures, along with rain and gusty winds, will continue along the coast.

Below-average temperatures are forecast in the Northeast due to a lingering storm system.
