NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Icy roads caused by freezing rain were making travel tricky in some parts of the Tri-State area on Wednesday, a day after a storm brought snow, sleet and freezing rain to the region.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory until 9 a.m. Wednesday for interior sections of northeast New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley and southern Connecticut. Temperatures there are hovering around freezing and could create slippery road conditions.
A special weather advisory is in effect for eastern Long Island and southeastern Connecticut because of conditions conducive to black ice.
Meteorologist Nelson Vaz says there are no problems in New York City where light rain was falling and temperatures were above freezing.
Another snow system is expected to approach the area Thursday evening into Friday. It could dump 2-6 inches.
