Winter Storm: Weather in New York: Snow, Sleet and Freezing Rain


Stephanie Keith for The New York Times


Wintry weather should begin lashing the New York region this morning.


The sleet, snow and freezing rain could last all day, meaning a possibly tricky Tuesday evening commute, and keep up until tomorrow morning.


Here’s what to expect:

Tuesday morning and afternoon

The National Weather Service predicts that snow and sleet will start this morning and continue into the afternoon, with temperatures reaching the low to mid-30s. The wintry mix should change to rain and snow later in the day, with up to an inch of precipitation possible.


“It doesn’t take much freezing rain to cause problems,”

said David Stark, a meteorologist with the Weather Service.


The outlook is more serious upstate, where up to eight inches of snow could fall, and on Monday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo directed state agencies to prepare for a possible weather emergency.


Tuesday night and Wednesday morning

Snow could turn to rain in places after about midnight, with up to a half-inch of precipitation possible.


Don’t stow away your foul-weather gear too soon — rain and scattered snow could keep falling into Wednesday.


Snowfall this season

There has been very little snowfall in the past two months, other than a December blizzard that dumped more than 10 inches of snow on Central Park. There has been 5.3 fewer inches of snow in the city than usual in January, said James Connolly, another Weather Service meteorologist.


January has also been warmer than usual, with average temperatures 4.6 degrees higher than normal. Those of us braving frigid weather for a coronavirus-cautious brunch, a phenomenon my colleague Corina Knoll described, might not have noticed.


In case you still prefer dining indoors (at home, of course), the snow comes alongside a new option for eating out. NYC & Company, the city’s tourism promotion agency, has kicked off Restaurant Week, which this year allows diners to order special takeout or delivery items from restaurants for $20.21.
