Freezing Rain Could Impact Monday Morning Commute in NYC Suburbs

17 Dec 2017, 2:45 pm

A glaze of ice could make the Monday morning commute a mess for some across parts of the East.

New York City’s northern suburbs, including parts of Connecticut, New York’s Hudson Valley and New Jersey, could all see light freezing rain or drizzle. The National Weather Service out of New York issued Winter Weather Advisories for the area due to the potential for slippery impacts on Monday.

While ice accumulations aren’t expected to be more than a hundredth or two of an inch, a small glaze of ice can turn roads slick and icy quickly. Bridges and overpasses should be closely monitored in particular for ice buildup, as they typically see ice accumulations first.

Allow extra time for the morning rush, as commuters will need to slow down due to the ice buildup on area roadways.

The ice should be done after the Monday morning commute, and the rest of the week mostly looks clear of wintry weather across the Northeast, although we are keeping an eye on a disturbance next weekend that could bring wintry weather for some in interior New England and upstate New York.
