Snow Forecast Maps Saturday Sunday 1/12-13/2019
This is going to be a minimal snow event. Around NYC, Southern Connecticut & Long Island a coating to an inch is the best possibility per the National Weather Service. It is possible that areas north of NYC could wind up getting little or nothing out of this. The problem is an abundance of dry air that will be problematic as moisture arrives. It is possible that much of the snow doesn’t even reach the ground with this system The snow would fall Saturday night into early Sunday morning and skies might actually clear out Sunday afternoon.
