Light, Fresh Snow to Blanket City Saturday

Forecasters say a winter storm system will blanket the city with a light, fresh coat of white snow this weekend, creating ideal conditions for sledding and strolling in temperatures that aren’t expected to be too cold.

Storm Team 4 calls this system a “postcard” type of storm — one that New Yorkers can enjoy and that will be far different from the series of punishing storms that walloped the area the last few months.

Meteorologists say about 2 to 4 inches of snow will likely fall across the region Saturday morning into Saturday evening. Snow will likely mix with rain along the coast, cutting down on accumulation in low-lying areas. The snow should begin between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. and continue through 7 p.m. or 8 p.m.

It won’t be a significant snowstorm, but there won’t be much blowing or drifting, which means a light layer of snow is expected to settle over a large swath of the region.

Temperatures are expected to reach highs in the low-to-mid 30s Saturday and Sunday. The beginning of next week stays chilly, with temperatures lingering around 33 degrees and partly sunny skies. There’s a chance for snow flurries on Tuesday.
