March Comes In...

Nor'easter trending warmer,
forecast to drop less snow on NYC
By NY1 News  |  March 6, 2018

The city will start seeing precipitation from another coastal storm Tuesday night, expected to make for a messy Wednesday evening commute, although the snowfall totals will not be as significant as first anticipated.
The city's sanitation department has issued a Snow Alert that will be in effect starting 10 p.m. Tuesday.

The forecast

Most of the city is expected to see 3 to 6 inches of snow Wednesday, with low amounts — 1 to 3 inches — possible along the ocean in Brooklyn and Staten Island, with more rain mixing in for those areas. The Bronx will see the most snow.

Earlier forecasts called for 6 to 12 inches of snow for the city overall.

Snow is forecast to start Tuesday night with a few flakes or rain, but steady snow and rain will develop between 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Heavy snow and rain is likely between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday, tapering off before midnight Wednesday.
