A fast-moving system will sweep across the Northeast on Sunday and Monday, when snowflakes could fly as far south as the tri-state area of New York City 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.
“We’re keeping our fingers crossed that we can catch up a few inches in the metropolitan areas of the Big Apple,” said Michael Estime, meteorologist at FOX Weather. “But it’s really going to get to the Finger Lakes of New York, Syracuse, Buffalo, Albany, New York where we’re going to see the lion’s share of the snow.”
A few inches of snow is expected Sunday through Monday in the interior Northeast, including much of upstate New York, northern Pennsylvania and western New England. Light snow accumulation is also possible as far north as New Jersey, but closer to I-95 there will likely be more rain than snow.
Regardless of whether enough cold air is available to turn the rain into a snowy spell in cities like New York, Bridgeport in Connecticut or Providence in Rhode Island, it would be the first snowfall of the season.
“The caveat is that we have three major airports — we have LaGuardia, we have JFK, we have Newark Liberty Airport — flight delays could be a very real problem as we head into Sunday and then Monday as well,” Estimate said. “Not to mention that the start of the new work week also begins with travel disruptions on the roads.”
