A snow storm will pass through the tri-state area Tuesday morning, making for a possible treacherous commute in the afternoon and evening hours as it accumulates, according to the National Weather Service.

The fast-moving system should arrive by late morning, around 11 a.m., and continue into the afternoon and mix with rain over New York City and Long Island, NWS says. Accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are possible for northeastern New Jersey, New York City and Long Island. Connecticut can expect up to 2 to 4 inches of snow.

A winter weather advisory goes into effect later this morning from 10:00 a.m. through 6:00 p.m. for northeastern New Jersey and the lower Hudson Valley, advising for slippery road conditions in the evening.  Another one was issued for parts of Connecticut, including New Haven and Middlesex.

Dry conditions with above average temperatures are expected for the rest of the week.
