It’s the calm before the storm for parts of the Tri-State, once again. A low pressure system developing in the Gulf will travel along the Atlantic coast and arrive over our area by early Saturday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of New York and New Jersey, which will be in effect from 4 a.m. through 10 p.m. Saturday.

Snow is expected to develop late Friday night and gradually change to a wintry mix of snow and freezing rain by Saturday morning. Rain will take over in the afternoon before turning into all snow by Saturday evening.

Accumulations of 1 to 4 inches of snow are possible as well as a glaze of up to a tenth of an inch of ice. Northern portions of the Lower Hudson Valley will see the most amount of snowfall.

Motorists are advised to take caution on the roads, as both slippery conditions and limited visibility are expected.

Temperatures Friday will reach a high of 35 and drop to a low of 19. They will be slightly higher Saturday, with a high of 37 and a low of 29.
