Watch Your Step: New York City Faces Light Snow, Icy Conditions

New York City may get about an inch of snow with a layer of ice making sidewalks and roads slippery.

Snow will start moving into the city after 11 a.m. and continue through the day, said Bob Oravec, a senior branch forecaster at the U.S. Weather Prediction Center. A winter-weather advisory is posted for New York and much of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic stretching back to the Midwest.

This season, 10.6 inches (27 centimeters) of snow has fallen in New York’s Central Park, 0.1 inch below normal for this time of year, according to the National Weather Service. After the current storm passes, the next chance for snow is early next week.

“There could be something brewing for Sunday, but it is still a little bit further out,” Oravec said. “It might be south of Boston, but it could affect New York City and Philadelphia to Washington.”

The outlook will be clearer later in the week, he said.
