Watch for changing road conditions during the evening rush hour. Some areas that were wet will get slippery, unless treated.
A modest storm will end from west to east over southeastern New York, New Jersey and Connecticut Tuesday evening.
Total accumulations will range from a few slushy spots around the city, along the New Jersey coast and over much of Long Island, between 1 and 3 inches in the nearby northern and western suburbs and up to 5 inches or so well north and west. Parts of Long Island can pick up a coating to an inch.
During the day Tuesday, most roads from New York City on south and east were wet with rain or a mixture of rain and snow falling. However, slightly lower temperatures north and west are promoting more snow than rain or all snow.
Throughout the area, most of the accumulation will be on non-paved surfaces, so it will not be like the nor'easter of a few weeks ago. No strong wind and no power outages. However, there will be some travel problems.
As slightly colder air filters across the area Tuesday evening, some areas that received rain during the day will start getting snow, and road surface temperatures will cool.
Be on the alert for changing road conditions during evening rush hour even as the precipitation comes to an end. Some roads can become slushy and even icy, where not treated.
The potential of icy spots will linger into Wednesday morning rush hour, well in the wake of the storm under clearing skies.
The balance of the week will be free of storms. A warmup is in store over the weekend into next week.
Powerful thunderstorms unleashed damaging winds, hail and tornadoes from Netherlands into Germany.

The central and southern Plains will continue to be pummeled by strong storms for the next several days, but the most potent severe weather threat is likely to be during the Mother's Day weekend.
Wind, seas and surf will build in advance of what is likely to become the first tropical system of 2015 along the southeastern Atlantic coast of the United States late this week.
Summer will lack any long-lasting heat waves across northwestern Europe, while parts of southern and eastern Europe will feel the heat.
