Tuesday midnightThe National Weather Service says snowfall rates are rising to about 0.5 inch per hour through 8 a.m.

8 am Tuesday: New Yorkers could expect 1 to 1 1/2 inches of snow accumulation, though up to 4 inches could arrive overnight. Warmer air will move into our area, which means snowfall will likely mix with sleet and freezing drizzle. The snow at this point will be wet and heavy.

These conditions may also result in snow on roads and sidewalks, creating travel difficulty as most people return to work and school after the weekend. Morning commuters may face dangerous conditions due to reduced visibility.

Powder snow is likely to remain in northeastern New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley, and inland areas of Connecticut.

11 am Tuesday: This is the most likely point for snow to turn into rain. Precipitation may become lighter, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures will rise to the low 30s.

1 pm Tuesday: Winter weather alerts end. The rain could turn back to snow. This new wave of snow will not lead to significant accumulation.

Tuesday night: The snow will clear by nightfall, but freezing temperatures will remain. The expected low for Tuesday is around 21 degrees.
