NEW YORK (CBS New York) – Winter Storm Watches and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for parts of the Tri-State Area in advance of Friday’s expected snow.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect all day Friday for parts of New York City, western Suffolk County, and northern and eastern New Jersey.
A Winter storm watch has been issued for Westchester County, southern Connecticut and eastern Suffolk County.
As the Tri-State Area continues to recover from last week’s blizzard, which dumped 20 inches of snow in parts of the region, this storm promises to dump up to four inches in New York City and on Long Island and as much as eight inches north and east, reports CBS 2′s Lonnie Quinn.
Light snow will begin at around 7 a.m. in the city and a heavier band is expected to develop and head east late Friday morning into the evening threatening to impact the evening rush.
The snow is expected to taper off by 8 p.m. in the city, a little later up north.
Friday’s high is expected to be 35 degrees but temperatures will likely be near or below 32 degress when it’s snowing.
Saturday will be partly cloudy with a chance of more snow or flurries. It will remain cold and windy for the entire weekend.
