It starts off cold Wednesday with temperatures in the 20s and RealFeels in the teens in the morning. The high will reach 32 by afternoon. Clouds increase in the evening before snow arrives from the southwest overnight.
Snow is slated to start falling on the five boroughs during the Thursday morning commute and continue throughout the day before changing over to sleet and rain by Thursday night, according to AccuWeather. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for New York City from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday.
The city and inland suburbs will see anywhere from 6 to 10 inches of snow, while coastal areas should get 3 to 6 inches of accumulation. Parts of northern New Jersey and the Hudson Valley could see upwards of 10 inches.
