Snow System To Bring Measurable Accumulation To Tri-State

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) –A storm system that was wreaking havoc Sunday in the upper Midwest is headed to the Tri-State.  While our area may not take quite the pounding from this storm, there will be more than enough accumulation to create some issues.

CBS 2 Meteorologist Elise Finch said the storm will bring 2 to 4 inches of snow to New York City and 3 to 6 inches of snow north and west of the city.

Light snow will begin falling around midnight and continue to pick up as sunrise approaches.  Snow will continue to fall through the early morning rush hour, which is likely to be less crowded due to the President’s Day holiday.  The snow will taper off by Monday afternoon.

A Winter Weather Advisory takes effect at midnight and will run through 2 p.m. Monday.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Carl Babinski said that snow could mix with or change over to sleet by day break in New York City and areas south of the the city.

Orange, Rockland and northern Westchester counties will experience almost all snow and totals could be as high as 5 or 6 inches.

Southern areas in New Jersey could see some light snow accumulation late Monday and early Tuesday as another system moves through.

    A winter snow storm is a beautiful thing. A blizzard has blowing winds, heavy snow and incapacitating abilities. 2-4 does not a blizzard make.

    Sensationalism is bad in the news, worse in the weather. You’ll be lucky if the weather even slows you down going to the corner store. But if you feel 3″ of snow is worthy of a snow day (on a holiday mind you), North Carolina has plenty of available dwellings, you will fit right in.

      You’re right, it sucks that we’re only getting 1-3 inches and not 12+ inches.

      1. Joe Sarcasm says:

        Tom, it is brave of you to admit that you want 12+ inches. Kudos for coming out.

    1.6 inches? Are you serious? Where was this precision just prior to the Jan 27th storm that initially promised “1-3 in” but left an accidental 20 inches?
