NEW YORK (PIX11) – Yet another round of snow is making its way to the tri-state Tuesday, with snow and ice falling steadily in time for the evening commute before it turns to rain and the process repeats itself all over again.
Expect cloudy skies by noon Tuesday and snow flurries starting between 3 and 4 p.m. Snowfall will become steady by 5 p.m., followed by a band of ice, and continue to blanket the area until at least 9 p.m. That’s when the precipitation will turn to rain. Rain is expected to continue on and off overnight.
A travel advisory is in effect for the Tuesday evening commute and Wednesday morning commute due to the slippery wintry mix, according to the New York City Office of Emergency Management.
Wednesday will begin relatively dry but a series of systems will move through throughout the day, bringing more rain followed by snow. The storm should move out entirely by Thursday.
When all is said and done, a trace to an inch of snow is forecast in New York City and its northern suburbs, Long Island and much of New Jersey. Most of Connecticut is expected to be blanketed with 1 to 3 inches of snow
A winter weather advisory has been issued starting at 3 p.m. until 10 a.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. The advisory applies to the lower Hudson Valley, most of southern Connecticut and parts of northeast New Jersey, where snow, sleet and freezing rain are expected to coat the roadways and make travel difficult at times, the agency said.
