Get Ready for Another Wallop of Snow

Tri-state thaws after bone-chilling cold

    Steel yourself for another blast of snow.  A fast-moving but powerful Nor'easter that could bring between 5 and 10 inches in the city will move into the region Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

    The tri-state warmed considerably on Tuesday after a string of bitter cold days thanks to an Arctic blast from Canada.

    But as this storm intensifies Wednesday evening it will draw in colder air, changing any mixed precipitation over to snow.  Snow will be heavy overnight with gusty winds into Thursday morning before tapering to lighter snow showers for the morning commute.

    By the time it's all said and done we'll be digging out from another 5"-10" inches of snow, with the greatest amounts north and east of the city.

    "We could have some slushy snow on the ground for the Wednesday evening commute. It will likely just be wet in the city, coastal areas and nearby New Jersey," according to Meteorologist, Raphael Miranda.

    After the evening commute and through the overnight into early Thursday morning, snow will take over all areas, even working its way to the coast. Accumulation rates will increase quickly between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. with several inches of a heavy wet snow possible, making for a potentially troublesome Thursday morning commute.

    As with any winter storm, any deviation from the forecast track could have major implications for precipitation type and amount.
