The time frame for the storm is overnight Monday evening, Feb. 12 into Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 13, according to the National Weather Service, which says travel could be "very difficult" during that time and "hazardous conditions could impact the Tuesday morning commute."
Precipitation is expected to begin as rain Monday night before changing over to a wintry mix a few hours before daybreak on Tuesday, with snow, which could be heavy at times, in inland areas, where a Winter Storm Warning is now in effect from 1 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday.
In the latest projections released by AccuWeather.com on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 11, a widespread 6 to 12 inches of snowfall is predicted for the inland areas shown in the darkest shade of blue in the image above, including much of the Hudson Valley, Catskills, and areas along the New England border in eastern New York, northern Connecticut, and throughout Massachusetts.
Surrounding areas shown in Columbia blue are expected to get 3 to 6 inches of accumulation.
Locally higher amounts of around 10 inches are possible, the National Weather Service said.
In spots shown in sky blue, 1 to 3 inches are forecast.
There's still uncertainty surrounding the exact timing and track of the system, and snowfall totals could increase.
During the height of the storm, winds could gust as high as around 30 miles per hour Tuesday, leading to possible scattered power outages.
There will be a mix of sun and clouds on Monday, with a high temperature in the mid-40s.
With the low temperature expected to drop to just below the freezing mark overnight into Tuesday, a widespread mix of rain, sleet, and snow is expected from the system, with mainly snow, heavy at times, in areas away from the coast.
"If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency," the National Weather Service is warning those in areas where significant snowfall is expected.
The outlook for Valentine's Day on Wednesday, Feb. 14 calls for mostly sunny skies and a high temperature in the low to mid-30s.
