NYC may get two more inches of snow as storm tapers off

The Big Apple could be hit with another inch or two of snow Tuesday as the winter storm that pounded the region begins to taper off, forecasters said.

As of around 8 a.m., 17.2 inches of snow were reported in Central Park, according to Accuweather senior meteorologist Tom Kines. Some areas of North Jersey have seen about 20 inches, he said.

“This is obviously a storm that will be remembered,” Kines said. “The worst of the storm is done with as far as the accumulating snow. There might be a couple more inches today, but that will be the extent of it.”

Morning commuters should be cautious about slick spots on the road, according to Kines.

“It did get above freezing for a time [overnight], and now temperatures have dipped down below freezing and those wet spots are starting to freeze up,” Kines said.

By the time the evening commute rolls around, he said, the mercury will rise above freezing again.

Meanwhile, the wind chill remains a concern, according to the forecaster.

“Even though the thermometer is going to say around 32, it’s going to feel 20 degrees colder than that outside,” he said.

While there may be some nighttime flurries, by midnight, the snow is expected to die down, Kines said.

Wednesday will be a sunny day, but windy — and it will feel like the lower teens outside, he said.

The wind will die down by Thursday, and the temperatures will reach the upper 30s, according to the forecaster.

“Good for snowball fights,” he said.
