Winter storm moves into region


Snow, rain and slush will cover Staten Island on Saturday as a winter storm hits the borough. Warm daytime temperatures with risky winds possible and max wind gusts between 45 to 60 miles per hour. The latest ending times are for our southern communities who can see the most additional snowfall this afternoon from a possible snow squall setting up anytime around 1-3 o'clock. The snow will become mixed with or change over to freezing rain by Saturday morning for a period of time before becoming all rain.

While Sunday's weather will be better than Saturday's, Knittle added that the back side of the storm will bring winds to the borough.

How much snow will we get?

A period of sleet and freezing rain will dominate this weather system with only small amounts of snow accumulation expected.

Springfield is expected to get snow after 4 p.m. until 1 a.m. with a chance of freezing drizzle early Sunday. A few heavier periods of snow will be possible in the evening before it tapers to lighter flurries after midnight.
