Exclusive hour-by-hour forecasts from Storm Team 4 – NBC New York
The New York City metro area is expected to see its first measurable snow in nearly two years on Tuesday morning.
Storm Team 4 is all over the forecast and preparing you for snowfall, which will likely come enough to break a snowless streak that has lasted more than 700 days.
Most areas are scheduled to get 1 to 3 inches but some areas in inland northern and western New York could locally get higher totals of up to 5 inches.

Hour by hour forecast
Here are Storm Team 4’s exclusive hour-by-hour forecasts for when snow will move in and out of the area, thanks to models available only to NBC New York.
Temperatures will be at or below freezing throughout the day as clouds move in Monday afternoon. The snow showers will stop for most people until later at night.
Snow begins moving into the area around 10pm but becomes heavier after midnight. Snowfall will be generally light and expected to accumulate in the 1-3 inch range.
As temperatures drop, everything will stick instantly, including the roads.
The morning commute will certainly see some impact although overall travel disruptions should be minimal.
Most of the New York City metro area Tuesday morning will see some type of rain.
The snow showers should end by early afternoon. Areas south and east of I-95 could see some mixing and freezing around midday.
There’s another chance for a round of light snow accumulation Friday into early Saturday. We still have several days off, so we will have more certainty about the potential for rain later in the week.
What is certain – several days of near-freezing highs and lows before temperatures rise in the middle of next week.
