A frigid mix of snow and rain is expected to blanket the New York City area later this week as a powerful storm system continues to move across the country.
“There will be mixed rainfall [in New York] at some points throughout Thursday into the early hours of Friday,” FOX weather forecaster Christopher Tate told The Post Tuesday morning.
“The separation between rain and snow will be very close to New York City itself,” he continued. “Someone in the New York metro area is going to see snow. I think it will mostly rain here in the city.”
Higher elevations in the region can expect up to 6 inches of snow before the system ushers in a dry but chilly weekend cold front.
“Sunday we’re going to have a hard time getting out of the 30s,” Tate said.
The storm’s arrival in New York is the final stop in a long-running event that began in Alaska before sweeping down the west coast.
“[The storm] brought rain and snow to the Pacific Northwest. It went right across the Midwest,” Tate said.
News of the storm comes as severe weather batters parts of the central U.S., with parts of South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota subject to heavy snow and winds.
In a message shared Monday, the South Dakota Department of Public Safety described the conditions as a kind of “‘We’re not kidding’ storm.”
