Wintry Mix Could Create Slick Conditions Around Tri-State Area
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Tri-State Area residents may face some slick roads Sunday and even some icing conditions.
Forecasters say snow and sleet should develop throughout the state Sunday afternoon before turning to rain late in the day.
A large amount of snow is not expected but the storm could give the city its first inch of snow for the season, experts said.
Freezing rain is also expected to fall during the changeover in the north and also possibly farther south.
As temperatures warm on Sunday night and Monday morning the snow could change to a wintry mix.
The National Weather Service said Saturday it expects less than an inch of snow to remain on the ground by Monday morning’s commute in all but northernmost New Jersey, where up to 2 inches could still be around.
Precipitation and low ceilings could cause flight delays out of local airports, 1010 WINS reported.
The New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert for wintry weather. The alert was sent Saturday for snow expected to arrive Sunday evening.
The Department of Sanitation says it has loaded 365 salt spreaders and attached plows and tire chains in anticipation of slick roads.
National Weather Service meteorologist Laura Nash says a low pressure system is approaching from the south _ and snow is expected to fall Sunday evening, around 5 p.m.
Nash says the snow will likely turn into a mixture of snow and rain. She says it will rain on Monday.
