    Raphael Miranda's noon forecast for Monday, December 24. (Published Monday, Dec 24, 2012)

    A winter weather advisory is in effect Monday night and into tomorrow morning for areas north and west of New York City, including Westchester, Rockland County, Northern New Jersey, and Fairfield County.

    A weak storm passes to the south Monday night, bringing showers to the city, Long Island and the Jersey shore.  Inland it may be cold enough for an icy mix of snow, rain, sleet and freezing rain. 

    Travel could be difficult Monday night as roads become slick. Expect a light coating of snow of not much more than a an inch, mostly on grassy surfaces, but it could be enough for a White Christmas in some suburbs. 

    A storm Wednesday night into Thursday morning has the potential for heavy rain, some coastal flooding, strong winds and heavy wintry precipitation north and west, while the city and nearby suburbs should expect only rain at this point. But if the storm's track changes, details will likely change too.
