A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Sunday, Feb. 1, at 7 PM, to Monday, Feb. 2, at 6 PM. The potential exists for NYC to receive up to 8 inches of snow accumulation along with a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and plain rain. Up to one-quarter inch of ice is possible. As the storm exits the area, temperatures will plummet into the single digits with wind chill values 10 to 20 degrees below zero Monday night.

Governor Cuomo also issued a warning. “With another winter storm expected to impact communities across the State, I am urging all New Yorkers to exercise caution when traveling,” Governor Cuomo said. “State agencies are ready and prepared to respond to worsening weather conditions, but I encourage all New Yorkers to plan ahead for delays and remain safe throughout the storm.”

His website also has details on the forecast for areas around the state.
