NY Weather: Stormy Saturday Starts With Sleet, Freezing Rain for Some; Rain for Others

It was a heavily muted winter snow-wise for New York City and we're looking at a mixed bag for the first full weekend of spring

Spring has sprung! And with it will come plenty of rain, which starts this weekend.

Ready for another mixed bag of weather? We got you covered with a stormy Saturday ahead of us.

The incoming system gets going early, with light precipitation arriving before sunrise. Some may see a brief mix of sleet or freezing rain, or both, especially further away from the coastline. HIgher elevations in Sullivan and Ulster counties in New York could see accumulating ice.

Steadier rain, along with some thunderstorms, is likely by midday. There will be on and off showers through the afternoon for much of the region, then a chance for thunderstorms late Saturday evening. A strong east wind will enhance the chance for minor coastal flooding for Saturday evening and Sunday high tides.
