Snow headed toward tri-state will make for slick morning commute

Snow is headed toward New York and New Jersey and that could make for slick driving conditions Wednesday morning.

Forecasters say a more steady light snow should start falling Tuesday night and continue into Wednesday.

A winter storm warning has been issued for Sussex County, where 5 to 7 inches is expected, and for Orange and Putnam counties which can expect 3 to 5 inches of accumulations.

Winter weather advisories are in place for Rockland, Warren, Morris, Hunterdon and Somerset counties. In those areas, 2 to 4 inches of snow are expected but higher amounts up to 6 inches are possible at higher elevations near Interstate 80.

Advisories have been dropped across New York City, coastal Connecticut and portion of northeast New Jersey where the precipitation is expected to change over to rain, lowering the amounts of accumulation in those areas.

Southern areas will likely only see a slushy inch or so of snow, while 1 to 2 inches could fall in central areas.
