It is possible that I may not be able to post a more detailed discussion on this storm tonight, though for now, I issued a Snow Watch for the entire area with an Ice Storm Watch for the interior parts of the area. For the latest alerts, please refer to the “Weather Alerts” page. The “5-Day Forecast” page was also updated for the central and western parts of the area.
The latest expectation is for snow to develop on Tuesday, with 2 to 4 inches for the eastern parts of the area, 3 to 5 inches in the immediate NYC area, and 4 to 7 inches for the interior parts of the area. The snow will change to sleet by the late afternoon, with a break in the precipitation overnight. Freezing rain will develop by the morning, changing over to rain in the immediate NYC area by the afternoon with significant icing possible inland.
This is still subject to some slight changes. Stay tuned for more information on this storm.
