We may be ready to spring ahead for the start of Daylight Saving Time, but Old Man Winter is being a bit stubborn.

That's because when clocks move ahead one hour on Sunday, March 10 at 2 a.m., we'll be in the midst of a new winter storm.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for portions of the Lower Hudson Valley, Northeast New Jersey and Southern Connecticut. (See image above.)

The advisory is in effect from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday farther south and until noon Sunday north of I-287 and the Merritt Parkway.

Expect a wintry mix with total sleet and snow accumulations of up to 1 inch and ice accumulations of a light glaze expected.

During that time, plan on slippery road conditions, and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

Rain and sleet will become all rain after 7 a.m. Sunday south of I-287 and the Merritt but continue as freezing rain and sleet farther north until around 11 a.m.

Precipitation will wrap up around noontime Sunday on a cloudy day in which the high temperature will be in the low 40s.

Monday, March 11 will be mostly sunny with a high again in the low 40s.
