Good evening all,
After a bright finish to the work week, we’re now gearing up for some more winter weather for the Tri-State region, all associated with a fast moving coastal storm.
Snow will be moving into the area from southwest to northeast after midnight and during the overnight hours. This is when the bulk of the snowfall accumulations will take place around the city, with a couple of inches possible by sunrise while temps are at or below freezing.
We then expect a changeover to sleet/rain after that as temps rise, with a quick round of snow/sleet on the back end Saturday afternoon and early evening. It will be cold enough farther north and west so this stays as mostly snow. Be sure to exercise caution, especially during the morning hours as things may be slippery. All of the precip looks to move out from west to east by 8 p.m.
Sunday looks like partly sunny skies with highs in the upper 30s.
As for Monday, we’re watching another clipper system that moves in from the west. The models continue to trend further south, so we’ll need to watch this one as we get closer.
Check back in this weekend for the latest!
