NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s no April Fool’s joke. More snow will hit parts of the Tri-State Area shortly after it enjoyed a brief reprieve from old man winter.
The storm will move into the area early Friday morning and bring a slushy 1 to 3 inches of snow in parts of New Jersey, Westchester County and areas north and west of Interstate 287.
AccuWeather meteorologist Dave Bowers said New York City could see some rain mixed with snow for the morning commute. He cautioned that the precipitation will have a hard time accumulating because temperatures are expected to stay above freezing.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Sussex County in New Jersey through noon Friday.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect in for Rockland, Orange, and northern Westchester counties in New Jersey. The advisory also includes western Bergen, western Passaic, Morris and Warren counties in New Jersey through noon Friday.
The sounds of winter were still echoing in Bedford Hills, N.Y., as front-end loaders piled salt and sand into spreaders that were ready to hit the roads at the first sign of snow.
“We got salt and sand available for the evening, and our crews will be prepared to take care of any situation that arises,” Bedford Public Works Commissioner Kevin Winn told WCBS 880′s John Metaxas.
Winn said his crews have already started spring cleaning, but were ready for what he hoped would be one last snow patrol this season.
“We’re somewhere between 80 and 90 percent through our budget for this year,” Winn said. “It’s been tough. Fortunately we caught a nice break over the last month to month and a half, but the first two months of winter were definitely pretty severe.”
