Projected snowfall totals have increased for the sprawling winter storm that will create hazardous driving conditions over a broad area this weekend.

The storm is expected to arrive early Saturday afternoon, Jan. 18 and wind down during Saturday evening. During that time, travel conditions are expected to be hazardous.

A total of 1 to 2 inches is now projected for New York City and Long Island, up from an inch. In Southern Westchester and coastal Connecticut, 1 to 3 inches is likely.

Areas north of I-287 in New York and the Merritt Parkway in Connecticut, including Northern Westchester and Northern Fairfield counties, are now expected to get 4 to 6 inches of snowfall.

Four to 6 inches is also predicted for Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Sullivan and Ulster counties.

Areas south of I-287 in New York and the Merritt Parkway in Connecticut will see a changeover to a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain late in the afternoon and then all rain after 8 p.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

Farther north and inland, the changeover from snow to a wintry mix is expected to come several hours later.

Precipitation will taper off in the early overnight hours of Sunday, Jan. 19.

Skies will become mostly sunny on Sunday with the high temperature in the mid to upper 30s.
