NYC: Snow on the Way for Tuesday

Another snowfall is in the works for New York City on Tuesday.

Lingering cold air will set the stage for a fast-moving storm originating from the Canada Prairies to bring a general 2-4 inches of snow to the region. The Winter Weather Center has the latest regional snow map.

Roads and sidewalks will be chilly enough to allow some of the snow to stick, making for slippery travel by vehicle and foot Tuesday, especially during the morning drive and at lunchtime.

Flight delays due to slippery runways, poor visibility and deicing are possible as well.

Heavier snow will unfold across eastern New England, including in Boston.

Temperatures are forecast to trend to near normal later this week, then above normal this weekend as storms with rain and perhaps fog move in. The rain and fog could hinder early Christmas travel.
