Dry conditions are expected for much of the night tonight with
increasing clouds as an area of low pressure over the Great Lakes
region approaches. There will be a chance for snow over western
portions of the area late tonight to around day break on Saturday.
Lows will range from the teens and 20s in the outlying areas, to
the lower to middle 30s across the New York City metro area.
Light precipitation will spread from west to east Saturday
morning. Precipitation will be all snow inland, but a change over
to all rain for much of the area is expected by the afternoon,
except for northern Orange county. Highs will be in the middle 30s
to around 40, well below normal for this time of year.
Rain will change back to all snow everywhere Saturday night and
will continue into Sunday morning as a secondary low develops off
the Mid-Atlantic coast and passes well south and east of Long
Island. With the exception of some lingering showers for eastern
sections into Sunday afternoon, the region should be dry by late
Sunday morning. Snowfall accumulations by Sunday afternoon will
range from 1 to 4 inches.
