AccuWeather forecast for New York, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut
NEW YORK (WABC) – The tri-state area is bracing for a powerful nor’easter that will kick off the week with heavy rain, snow and damaging winds.
AccuWeather says a northeaster will move north along the mid-Atlantic coast late Sunday night into Tuesday, and the storm’s center will deepen as it moves toward coastal New England.

While New York City and Long Island may only get a couple of inches of snow, areas north of I-287 could see significant amounts of snow.
New York Governor Hachul advised residents who live and work in the affected areas to avoid any non-essential travel as slippery surfaces and reduced visibility will affect travel Monday evening, all day Tuesday and likely Wednesday morning.
“New Yorkers should prepare for weather that will bring significant snowfall to the eastern parts of the state, especially in areas along the Hudson River and around the metropolitan region,” Governor Hachul said.
A winter storm watch is currently in effect for all of eastern New York state, north of New York City.
The storm track could significantly affect conditions in northern New Jersey and southeastern New York. Any small shift can cause problems due to the amount of snow in the region.
