NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A slushy accumulation could make for some slick spots north and west of I-287 on Wednesday.

Snow is expected to arrive around midday and will mix with and change to sleet and then rain in the afternoon. There is expected to be little or no accumulation on roads before the changeover in New York City.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for Sussex, Orange, Putnam and northern Fairfield counties from noon Wednesday through Thursday morning.

AccuWeather meteorologist John Feerick says you’ll have to go well north of west of the city to see any slick travel. He added that it was not “out of the question” to see a slippery coating, but conditions will be mostly wet.

“In the city, precipitation will start as snow around midday Wednesday and eventually mix with sleet and go over to plain rain in afternoon –probably only a short period snow so not expecting any accumulation in and around the city,” Feerick said.
