NBCNewYork.com is reporting:
New York City could get up to 8 more inches of snow as a storm moves up the coast overnight Wednesday into Thursday, the latest blast of winter in a neverending series of storms.
Any snow Thursday comes on top of the 3 to 4 feet that has already fallen across the area this winter. Central Park has seen 41.5 inches of snow so far this season, above the average snowfall of 27 inches. But it’s far from the record 75 inches of snow set during the 1995 to 1996 winter season.
Forecasters say the latest system moves into the area overnight Wednesday into Thursday.
It’s expected to deliver precipitation no matter what, but the track it takes will determine how much of that will be rain and how much will be snow.
One version of the storm’s track shows heavy snow inland, but a mix of snow and rain along the coast.
The other has all snow, with the highest totals north and west of I-287, where forecasters predict 9 to 12 inches will fall. New York City could get 5 to 8 inches, while the south shores of Long Island and the Jersey shore are forecast to get 2 to 4 inches of sleet and snow, followed by plain rain.
Areas that experience mostly sleet and rain during the day Thursday may see more snow Thursday night as colder air returns.
A swath of heavy snow is projected by AccuWeather.com to reach from portions of western and central Virginia, the West Virginia mountains and northern Maryland to southeastern and central Pennsylvania, northern New Jersey, southeastern New York and central New England.
