NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Temps are dropping to end the workweek ahead of a weekend winter storm that’s expected to bring snow, sleet and rain to the tri-state.

After a mild and mostly sunny Wednesday, conditions become much windier and colder Thursday, according to AccuWeather.

A wind advisory is in effect until 7 p.m. for NYC and surrounding areas.

The early high Thursday will be 49 before temperatures plunge into the 30s by the evening commute. By late day, RealFeels will be in the 20s and wind gusts could top 45 mph.


Friday will be mostly sunny but brisk and much colder, with a high of 32 degrees.

Clouds arrive early on Saturday and the snow will hit by midday or afternoon. The high will be 37.

A couple of inches of snow may accumulate Saturday, especially in the Hudson Valley and New Jersey suburbs to the northwest.

Snow will eventually mix with, then change to, sleet and rain later in the day or night.

Roadways may be slick before this changeover to rain happens late Saturday.
