The latest winter storm will continue to hit the New York City area Wednesday afternoon with a round of travel delays and disruptions to daily activities. Another storm is due over the weekend.
While the storm this past Sunday night began as rain and changed to snow, the midweek storm started off as snow, then changed to ice and rain.
Much more snow is forecast to fall well north and west of the city with the midweek storm, compared to last Monday's event. A heavy layer of ice will continue to occur near and just north and west of the city.
Where the change to rain is delayed or does not occur over the northern and western suburbs, a heavy amount of snow and ice will accumulate. In these areas, there is a risk of downed tree limbs and power outages.
The commute home Wednesday could be also slow for those heading to the north and west, even though the storm itself will have moved away.
Around the city and coastal areas, where a change to rain occurs, there is the potential for urban flooding problems as the rain can come down heavy at times.
Wet and slushy areas will freeze Wednesday night. Be alert for areas of black ice on roads and sidewalks Wednesday night to Thursday morning.
The region should get a little more of a breather before the next storm rolls in. The timing of the third storm in less than a week is scheduled for this weekend locally.
The weekend storm could be the strongest of the winter, if it develops to its full potential and occurs as a single storm, rather than two separate ones.
