NYC could see first snowfall of season over Thanksgiving weekend

New York City may see its first snowfall of the season as the wintry storm moves into the area over the weekend as temperatures dip to an abnormal low, according to meteorologists.

On Sunday lake-effect snow is forecast to reach the area however only a small coating to an inch of accumulation is expected in the city due to temperatures and daylight, according to Accuweather.

Cities to the north of New York such as Albany and Hartford, Connecticut all have a possibility to see a few inches of snow from the storm, meteorologists said, as do other areas to the north and west.

Airline delays are likely due to de-icing of aircraft in some locations, Accuweather predicted.

If the quick-moving storm suddenly stalls and strengthens on Sunday night into Monday, New York City will have a greater chance for snow accumulation.

Temperatures dipped 8 -15 degrees Fahrenheit below normal on Tuesday and Wednesday, Accuweather reported. While temperatures warmed a bit on Thursday for Thanksgiving, temperatures are expected to plummet again by the weekend to levels typical of mid to late December.

Temperatures are expected to drastically decrease over the weekend, Accuweather says.

Unusually warm Atlantic Ocean temperatures will lower the chance of snow accumulation along the immediate area, where a mix of rain and snow is more likely.

Accuweather predicts local road conditions will be wet with possible slippery spots outside of urban areas when roads cool on Sunday night.
