    Snowstorm Hits NYC Tuesday

    A new storm has moved up from the Southwestern states, and will deliver a dose of accumulating snow and travel delays to New York City Tuesday.

    Enough snow will fall to make roads slushy and slippery in spots around Manhattan and to have to shovel and plow in the surrounding boroughs and suburbs. Flight delays are likely, due to deicing operations and slippery runways. A ground stop is in progress at Newark International Airport as of 8:00 a.m.

    The snow will last an average of six to eight hours and will reach from Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia, to Hartford, Conn., Providence, R.I., and Boston.


    The storm is forecast to bring an average of 3 inches locally, but a few locations along the I-95 corridor can receive up to around 6 inches. Most of the accumulation will be on non-paved surfaces.

    While the storm will begin as rain on parts of Long Island, it will change to snow before ending.

    The ultra fast movement of the storm will allow the snow to end during the mid- to late-afternoon Tuesday.

    Arctic air will follow the storm during the middle and latter part of the week. Many locations from the Ohio Valley to the Northeast will have their lowest temperatures of the season so far.

    Locally, nighttime temperatures can dip into the teens around the city, but to the single digits in the northern and western suburbs Thursday night.

    Yet another storm with snow could affect the area during part of the coming weekend.
