There is more snow to go from the nor'easter around New York City Thursday evening. Another storm may swing through on Saturday.

Some locations may even experience thunder and lightning with the last batch of snow from the storm.

With the current storm, snowfall so far this season in New York City may top 51 inches. The snowiest winter on record was in 1995-96, when 75.6 inches fell. The current 10th-snowiest winter on record is 53.2 inches set in 1906-07.

Prior to a change to rain, Central Park received about 9.5 inches of snow from the storm, but some areas received more. The original AccuWeather forecast for the storm for New York City, issued on Tuesday was for 6 to 10 inches.

Snow changed to rain along the coast at midday. A dry sweep of air will cause precipitation to be intermittent Thursday afternoon. However, another period of snow will spread from southwest to northeast across the area during the evening.

This new batch of snow can bring a few inches of new snow to some locations and can make roads that were cleared off slippery once again.

Moderate winds near the coast at the height of the storm and immediately in its wake could lead to sporadic power outages and downed tree limbs.

As the storm strengthens into Thursday night, enough onshore wind may be generated to cause minor flooding at times of high tide from New Jersey to Maine. The highest astronomical tides typically occur a day or so before the full moon, which happens to be on Friday, Valentine's Day. Water levels are likely to run about 2 feet above published levels.

The storm will depart later Thursday night and Friday morning, but travel disruptions may linger throughout Valentine's Day.

Another storm with snow will move in from the west during the first part of the weekend. That storm could strengthen near the coast and could bring a heavy accumulation to part of the Northeast.
