After a quiet start Saturday, we’ll see light snow breaking out through the afternoon/early evening.
The coastal low will continue making its way to the coast Saturday night, bringing widespread snow across New York. The heaviest snow will fall from Saturday evening into Sunday morning. Snowfall rates could be upwards of 1-2+ inches an hour. The system exits the region Sunday, but during the big snow, roads will be snow covered, slow and tough to travel on. High wind gusts upwards of 35+ mph will create areas of blowing and drifting snow on Sunday.
Much colder air is funneled in as a result of the storm as well, featuring 0s/10s for highs on Sunday, single digits on Monday. As winds continue to blow, we could find dangerously cold wind chills Sunday night into Monday. Frostbite could be obtained in as little as 10 minutes under these conditions.
Temperatures do recover heading towards the middle of next week.
