NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — As if the bitter cold weather wasn’t bad enough, more snow has made its way to the Tri-State area.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory from 1 p.m. Saturday through 2 a.m. Sunday for New York City, Long Island, portions of central
and southeastern Connecticut, and portions of northeast New Jersey.
Snow began to fall in New York City around 1:30 p.m. Saturday as the storm moves west to east.
Steady snow continued through the evening and became heavy at times.
The storm is expected to change over to rain for early Sunday morning.
“…Temperatures are going to start rising into the 40s on Sunday,” Office of Emergency Management Commissioner Joe Esposito told 1010 WINS. “So that will be the day to get out there, if you’ve got some frozen driveways or walkways, that might be the day to get out there and take care of it because it’s going to get cold again next week.”
Before the rain begins, places like Ocean and Monmouth counties in New Jersey and most of Long Island can expect between a coating to 2 inches of snow, CBS2 Meteorologist Vanessa Murdock reported Saturday morning.
