PIX11 WEATHER CENTER — The tri-state area will be on an active weather pattern for the upcoming week and into next weekend.
Monday, a storm system will move through the region, dumping as much as eight inches of snow in portions of the area. Snow will continue, heavy at times through the morning and into early afternoon Monday. Winter Storm Warnings are in effect through 7:00 p.m. for New York City, Long Island, and northeastern New Jersey.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through 7:00 p.m. for the lower Hudson Valley and coastal Connecticut. We can expect six to eight inches over northeastern New Jersey, New York City, and Long Island. Three to six inches will fall over the lower Hudson Valley and coastal Connecticut. The snow will taper off for the evening commute and temperatures will fall through the 30s into the 20s as we move into the overnight hours.
Tuesday will be partly sunny and colder with temperatures in the low to mid 30s. Then our next storm will approach from the west and bring chance of wintry precipitation. This storm will be more of an icy mix and rain event as milder air will get drawn into the system. This system will cause travel troubles with ice in some spots before changing over to rain. High temperatures will be near 40 degrees with some low to mid 40s.
Things will quiet down toward the end of the work week as unseasonably cool air remains over the region. A third storm system may affect our area next Sunday into Monday with the potential for heavy snow.
