NEW YORK – As we gleefully celebrate Thanksgiving, snow could hit our area just after the holiday, according to The Weather Authority (LAEET).
LAEET says the first significant snowfall of the season could hit the tri-state area just after the long holiday weekend. The most recent forecast shows that snowfall could begin Sunday night and last until Monday morning as temperatures dip to around or below the freezing mark.
In terms of accumulations, New York City’s extreme north and west areas will be hit the hardest, possibly around five inches in places like Dutchess, Sullivan and Ulster counties. The areas between Poughkeepsie and White Plains, as well as the northernmost parts of New Jersey and inland Connecticut, will be a little below that, probably three to five inches.
Other parts of northern New Jersey, as well as Rockland County, inland Westchester County, and the Connecticut coastline could be between one and three inches.
As for the city, it will be less than an inch at best, but it is quite possible that it will be covered with a layer of grass.
The forecast is likely to change between now and Sunday night, so stay tuned to The Authority’s forecast in El Tiempo for the latest storm projections and trajectories.
