A winter system that will bring a mix of rain, sleet and freezing rain to the area early Tuesday may be just a preview for a much more significant system expected to arrive overnight Wednesday into Thursday.
That storm system could result in plowable snow and accumulation of 6 inches or more, the National Weather Service said.
Uncertainty with the storm is high as the dynamic that will cause the storm to develop along the East Coast is still over the Pacific Ocean.
If the storm does develop, it should be a quick-moving system and out to sea by Thursday afternoon.
The storm system overnight into Tuesday should arrive in the predawn hours. Areas south of Interstate 287 should see all rain from the storm.
Farther north, a mix of snow and sleet is expected overnight into Tuesday followed by freezing rain that could last through the morning before ending around noon.
