Snow to turn to rain in NYC during Sunday night winter storm


Snow will probably turn to rain during Sunday night’s winter storm, as temperatures rise above freezing, in accordance to a meteorologist.

Tri-state space residents can count on “an inch or two of slushy snow, then rain,” AccuWeather senior meteorologist John Gresiak mentioned in an interview.

“They’ll be some snow coming in Sunday evening, probably around 9 or 10 o’clock. But it will very quickly in the city and other coastal areas change to rain,” he mentioned.

The New York metro space gained’t see the kind of accumulation anticipated in western New York. Buffalo and Rochester are taking a look at 12-18 inches.

Late Sunday night and Monday morning the metro space will probably see “heavy rains” and winds of 30-40 miles per hour, out of the east, he mentioned. Gusts might attain 59 mph.

That could lead on to coastal flooding, he mentioned — of which the National Weather Service has warned for town, Westchester, and elements of New Jersey.

That rain is predicted to “taper off” Monday, with some snow flurries, however probably no accumulation, Gresiak added.

The weatherman has one tip for householders, as Monday night will probably see a return to sub-freezing temperatures: “If you’ve got any slush laying around and you want to get rid of it, do it Monday.”
