While this year we have yet to see snow (with the exception of brief flurries a few weeks ago), that’ll all change this weekend. The first snowfall of the season is expected to begin on Saturday morning at 6 am, and coat all five boroughs with fresh powdered snow all day long.
Depending on where you are in New York, the amount of snow expected to fall ranges with the potential of up to 6 inches of snow in parts of Queens, Brooklyn, and Long Island. However, according the NY Daily News, “roadways and sidewalks are expected to remain free of significant accumulation because of temperatures hovering above freezing.”
The first accumulating snow is expected on Saturday into Saturday night. Winter Weather Advisories have been posted for 1 to 3 inches across Orange County, 2 to 4 inches for Manhattan, Bronx, NE NJ, and Lower Hudson Valley, 4 to 6 inches for Queens, Brooklyn, LI and CT. pic.twitter.com/WSy4spEvl6

National Weather Service meteorologist Tim Morrin says that “the heaviest snow will likely hit the city Saturday afternoon.” He also says that “road travel will be most treacherous” at night, once it’s dark.
The weather advisory will be in effect until 1 am on Sunday morning.
