Weather Summary for the Local Tri-State Region
National Weather Service New York NY
336 PM EDT Tue Mar 20 2018

A light wintry mix is possible across the southern half of the
region this evening out ahead of an approaching low pressure
system, otherwise the area will remain dry until the main batch
of precipitation overspreads the area early Wednesday morning.

As low pressure develops off the Mid Atlantic coast early
Wednesday morning and moves northeast, precipitation will begin to
overspread the area from south to north around daybreak. Other
than a several hour period Wednesday morning where snow may mix
with sleet across Long Island, the bulk of the precipitation is
expected to fall as snow. Snow could become heavy at times by late
morning, with heavy snow continuing through the afternoon and into
the evening across the majority of the region. Snowfall totals
will range from 10-15 inches across the majority of the area, with
lower totals across far western Orange county where there will be
less precipitation overall and far eastern Suffolk County where
mixed precipitation will linger the longest. In addition to the
snow, winds could gust to 35-45 mph, especially along the coast.

Snow will taper off from west to east around midnight. Dry weather
and sunshine then return for Thursday, although temperatures are
expected to remain several degrees below normal.
