Whipping wind and soaking rain pounded the region overnight, flooding area roadways and leaving a messy morning commute for travelers.
The northeaster dumped a snow-rain mix on New York and New Jersey, leaving slick and sloppy driving conditions.
That storm also caused flight delays at LaGuardia, Liberty International and JFK airports, while causing MTA officials to shut down 3 Train service between 96th and 148th streets.
According to AccuWeather.com, snowfall accumulations reached eight inches in Syracuse and about 11 inches in Buffalo.
Some areas in northern New Jersey are already experiencing minor flooding, including Red Bank and Neptune City in Monmouth County.
While the rain should taper by 9 a.m., the wind should remain, with the National Weather Service calling for wing gusts of up to 38 miles per hour in the city.
Tomorrow should be sunny and clear.
And then? Possibly more snow Saturday. Meteorologists are keeping an eye on this weekend’s weather potential.
“It’s too early to see if there will be any accumulation,” AccuWeather.com forecaster Tom Kines said.
