A fast-moving system will sweep across the Northeast on Sunday and Monday, when snow could whiten the ground as far south as New York’s lower Hudson Valley and southern New England for the first time this season.
Much of the Interstate 95 corridor has yet to record any measurable snowfall this season. While most of this upcoming snow will remain confined to the interior Northeast, the FOX Forecast Center cannot rule out some snow trying to sneak into some of the larger cities.
“If we go into Sunday night, things could get interesting for New York City. Can we see our first snow?” FOX Weather meteorologist Britta Merwin said. “Well it’s possible, but the latest trends are looking like most of the snow will be north of the I-95 corridor.”
You can see on the FOX Weather FutureTrack below that the late Sunday night and early Monday morning rain/snow line will most likely set north of the Big Apple, although it could snow nearby such as in the lower and middle Hudson Valley, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Between 1 and 3 inches of snow is expected in the interior Northeast Sunday through Monday, including much of New York state, northern Pennsylvania and much of New England. Locally higher amounts of 3 to 5 inches are possible in some of the region’s higher elevations.
A light snowfall is also possible in far north New Jersey, but closer to I-95 there will likely be more rain than snow, particularly from New York City and points to the south.
Regardless, if enough cold air is available to turn the rain into snow in cities like Bridgeport, Connecticut, and Providence, Rhode Island, it could be the season’s first measurable snowfall.
“This is not a massive storm, but it could be the first snow for many people in the Northeast,” Merwin said. “West New York was hit — we had this lake effect snow event that was 7 feet of snow. But if you live in Connecticut, you really haven’t seen much snow, and you might see it Sunday through Monday morning.
