As a strong storm system nears the Northeast, a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for parts of the region far north and inland.
Mixed precipitation including snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected for areas where the advisory is in effect, including western Ulster and Sullivan counties in the Hudson Valley and northern Litchfield in Connecticut. (See second image above.)
Total snow and sleet accumulations of 2 to 4 inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze to up to a tenth of an inch is possible in those areas.
The advisory is in effect from 10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 until 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24, where the wintry mix will result in slippery roads and limited visibilities, the National Weather Service said in a Hazardous Weather Statement.
Areas of light freezing rain are possible across Orange, Dutchess and Putnam counties and northern Fairfield overnight. The best chances for freezing rain will be across higher elevations. Temperatures are expected to slowly rise before daybreak, lessening the chances for freezing rain.
The rest of the region, where temperatures will stay above freezing, will see all rain during the storm.
A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect for southern Westchester, coastal Fairfield County, northern Nassau County and northwestern Suffolk County from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday.
Sunday will be a mostly cloudy, raw and rainy day in which the high temperature will climb to the low to mid 40s. Rain will finally taper off sometime after 3 p.m.
About an inch to an inch and a quarter of rainfall is expected, with the highest amount farthest south, including Long Island, which could get 1.5 inches of rainfall.
Monday, Nov. 25 will be mostly sunny, with a high temperature in the mid to upper 40s.
