Though western NYC recently had a wild snowstorm, NYC has yet to have receive any substantial flurries. And with light displays everywhere and NYC twinkling in full holiday mode, there’s nothing’s quite as magical as the first actual snow of the season in NYC. Lucky for us, it might be this weekend!
According to the Storm Team 4, areas in and around NYC have a slight change of snowfall on Sunday, December 11. However, the forecast is mostly showing possible snow for the Hudson Valley, Catskills & northwestern New Jersey, with up to 3 inches!

As of now, it’s predicted to be mostly rain for NYC, but a wintry mix of rain and snow is probable. “New York City will be smack in the middle of the [mini storm] likely to at least have rain transition to snow, shares AccuWeather meteorologists.
NY1 Weather explains that though it won’t be enough for traffic impacts or accumulation in the city, it can still be the first flakes to fall this season. Manhattan hasn’t seen snow since last March!
A south trend with the 'landfall' point on the West coast is a good sign for East coast snow. That point can roughly translate to where it moves off the East coast. (1/2) #WxTwitter pic.twitter.com/bpSZBEcjqb

Whenever the first snow does come, we’re sure it’ll look as magical as it always does!
