  • We’re tracking the potential for snow across the Tri-State on Friday, with most of the region getting up to an inch, but up to 5 inches in areas of New Jersey and Pennsylvania southwest of New York City.
  • A winter storm warning is in effect for Ocean County, New Jersey, and state offices are closed
    A winter weather warning has been issued for the five boroughs, Long Island and areas north and west of the city. New York City issued a travel advisory for Friday
  • The coldest air since last February is moving in this weekend behind a storm system, and temperatures are not expected to rise above the freezing mark until Monday.

The third winter storm in about a week hit the tri-state area on Friday, dumping up to 5 inches of snow in some areas before rolling in the coldest air the region has seen in nearly a year.

Winter storm warnings are in effect throughout New Jersey’s Ocean County, which could see those isolated higher totals, while winter weather warnings have been issued elsewhere, including New York City’s five boroughs. Widespread snowfall of 1 to 3 inches is expected, and given the cold air, the system will be an all-snow event.

This means that transportation may be affected. New York City issued a travel advisory as a precaution. Some school districts made plans to close or dismiss as early as Friday. You can check out the full list here. View the latest severe weather alerts here.

This storm is likely to be similar to one earlier this week, which was barely enough to break a 701-day snow drought that has plagued Central Park.

Right now, it looks like snow will start falling in the city at sunrise on Friday, tapering off between 5pm and 8pm, and most locations should see about 3 inches of snowfall over an 8-12 hour period.

The end of the morning commute on Friday could be smooth, as the build-up begins. It can be even more slippery in the evening rush hour, as untreated roads, driveways and sidewalks become extremely slippery throughout the day.

New York City has issued a travel advisory warning residents to use caution when driving, walking or biking, to allow for additional travel time. Alternate side parking is suspended on Friday. Recently, the Sanitation Department reminded property owners of the rules for shoveling and cleaning sidewalks after snowfall.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy previously announced that New Jersey state employees are closed.

The incoming system will also bring the coldest air since last February. Saturday will be the coldest day, with wind chills in the single digits. We expect more of the same for Sunday.

We’ll be back above freezing by Monday, then thaw for a while. At least we can see the finish line.
