Ahead of Sunday’s storm, the Sanitation Department issued a Snow Alert starting at 6 p.m. Sunday, and the Office of Emergency Management issued a Travel Advisory for the Monday morning commute.

A Winter Weather Advisory has also been issued from 9 p.m. Sunday to 10 a.m. Monday for much of northern New Jersey, the Hudson Valley and southern Connecticut.

Sunday’s storm won’t be a blizzard, but it could be a major headache for people trying to get around into Monday morning.

AccuWeather says some snow moves in around 9 p.m. and mixes with ice and rain late Sunday into Monday morning, with a coating to an inch of accumulation possible in and around the city. 

As much as 3 inches of accumulation is possible in northern New Jersey and the Hudson Valley, according to AccuWeather.

The high Monday is 42.

Wednesday storm

It will be quiet Monday afternoon through Tuesday, with partly cloudy skies and 30-degree temps in the forecast before a second system brings snow and ice later on Wednesday, AccuWeather says. The high Wednesday is 32.

The snow Wednesday night will change to rain by Thursday morning before the system moves out and temps rise to the low 50s in the afternoon.
