Winter Weather Advisories in effect for the Tri-States!

Snow will begin to overspread the Tri-States between 9 AM (southwest) and 3 PM (far northeast) tomorrow in association with a potent upper level storm system that will bring a mixed bag of precipitation to the region. Most areas are poised to pick up 1" - 3" of snow accumulation before precipitation changes over to sleet or freezing rain.

As warm air battles to surge northward the region will see the aforementioned transition to either sleet and/or freezing rain, beginning between 1-3 PM (far southwest) and 4-6 PM (far northeast). Some forecast models are hinting at a stubborn wedge of warm air aloft that keeps freezing rain ongoing for a longer duration than originally anticipated; hence, ice accumulations should generally range between 0.05" - 0.20" with some areas flirting with 0.25"+ ice accumulations before warm air finally brings a changeover to all rain by 6 AM Saturday morning for most parts of the tri-states.

Note: Given that winds could gust between 20-30 mph Saturday evening and overnight Saturday, some power outages are possible in areas that see more magnanimous ice accumulations prior to the changeover to all rain. Stay Tuned!
