NYC weather: Snow expected as NWS issues winter storm warning

Wednesday's nor'easter produced a large amount of snow, approaching almost 2 feet in some areas of New Jersey.

However, it would take six more storms to bring the state up to its normal winter precipitation by April, the National Weather Service cautioned.

Boston will see more rain than snow. Eastern Long Island will be under a winter storm watch.

"Not as much wind is expected as the last storm", Eric Sinsabauth, a meteorologist in the NWS office in Gray, said Tuesday.

The heaviest snow will fall between about 10 a.m.to 7 p.m. with rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour likely.

Once you get north and west of Interstate 495, the storm will bring heavy snow, forecasters said.

Parts of the Northeast can also expect renewed power outages and widespread travel disruptions as impacts from the second nor'easter expand, according to weather reports.

Accumulating snow is in store for major cities including Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, Conn., and Boston.

A winter storm warning will go into effect at 10 p.m. Tuesday and last until 4 a.m. Thursday for northern New Jersey, New York City, western Long Island, the lower Hudson Valley and most of CT, according to the National Weather Service.

Light rain and light snow will develop late this afternoon and especially this evening, then transition to all snow tonight and continue Wednesday.

A winter storm warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible.

Six states recorded wind gusts of at least 70 miles per hour.

All schools were closed in Philadelphia while schools across the region canceled classes or shortened the school day ahead of the storm on Wednesday, local media reported.

If you're traveling inland, Wednesday's storm will be a different story.

It should crash into the North East around Tuesday evening / Wednesday morning. Significant reductions in visibility are anticipated. Residents are advised to prepare for possible power outages with blankets, flashlights, non-perishable food, water, and battery operated radios for storm and news updates.

Winds toppled power lines and flooded coastal towns throughout the Northeast as about 2 million homes and businesses lost power.

Even though areas near the rain-snow line would see less snow, that snow is likely to be wet and heavy, capable of taking down branches and knocking out power.
