Major Snow/Ice Storm Heads for NYC Area

NEW YORK

Another major winter storm threatens the tristate area Wednesday and Thursday, meteorologists say, but they are still uncertain what parts will see snow, sleet or rain or a combination of the three.

The storm is expected to reach New York City early Thursday afternoon, and continue well into the night.

According to Accuweather, the storm will bring 3 to 6 inches of snow and rain during the day Thursday and an additional 2 to 4 inches overnight. Upstate New York will see some more.

The greatest risk of heavy snow is along the coast and in southern New Jersey, where the National Weather Service says 6 to 8 inches are possible. Ocean County, which is home to Lakewood Township, is among eight counties with a winter storm watch in effect from Wednesday through Thursday.

Forecasters warn that the storm’s track remains uncertain. A shift could mean more sleet or rain in parts of the area.

Alternate-side parking regulations are suspended through Wednesday in New York City.
