New York City and New Jersey residents are bracing for yet another messy winter siege early Tuesday, with snow expected to fall over a wide swath of the tri-state through mid-morning before changing to rain in some spots and lingering as the white stuff in others.
By the time the system moves out, New York City could see 3 to 4 inches of snow. Northern New Jersey, Westchester, Rockland and Fairfield will see about 3 to 5 inches, and the Hudson Valley, northwest New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania will have 5 to 8 inches. Long Island and Jersey Shore should see about 1 to 3 inches.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has declared a state of emergency beginning midnight Monday ahead of the the very large storm system. Snow will start creeping into the tri-state after 3 a.m. and continue pushing north Tuesday morning, with a change over to a wintry mix starting mid-morning.
The wintry mix lifts north through the rest of the morning and afternoon hours, and it will all change over to plain rain Tuesday night for most areas. But a prolonged period of sleet and freezing rain will make travel difficult on any untreated roads. Isolated power outages and downed trees are possible for areas that get more significant icing further inland.
