NEW YORK (PIX11) - A low pressure system is moving across the region bringing a bout of rain for most areas but a mixed bag of precipitation north and west of the city. Winter weather advisories are in effect for Northern New Jersey and Upstate New York through at least this evening.
For areas under the advisory, the precipitation will fall in the form some snow, sleet and freezing rain through at least midnight. Accumulations will be light at around a coating to one inch of snow, but adding in the ice is making travel quite treacherous. Eventually those areas will go above freezing allowing the risk of icy roads to dissipate.
No worries across the city and coast of any icy weather are expected as temperatures have been and expected to stay above freezing. There were some initial reports of sleet and snow mixing in with the rain, which was expected. As we got into it, all of it eventually changed to rain. The threat of rain will continue into the overnight hours. Temperatures will continue to rise through 40s as southerly winds drives up milder temperatures into tomorrow morning.
There could be a few spritzes here and there through tomorrow afternoon, but more or less it’ll be a dry day. Clouds, however will be slow to clear as the low pressure slowly drifts into Canada. Highs will be in the 50s.
