A Winter Storm Warning will go into effect for areas along and north of I-80 at 3pm today. A few flurries may decorate the area before sunrise, but the main wave of moisture will move in from Iowa into southern Minnesota toward sunrise and then into central Minnesota shortly after that.
The snow will kick off around midnight, starting in the more southern communities and working its way north.
Two to 4 inches of snow and sleet is likely in New York City, northeast New Jersey, the Lower Hudson Valley, parts of Long Island and southern CT, the National Weather Service stated Monday morning. That means expect your drive Tuesday morning to be a slow one. With the wintry-wet transition underway, Tuesday morning's commute may very well be a messy ride.

The winter storm is expected to bring a combination of 10 to 20 centimetres of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain before the end of Wednesday. Drivers are also being warned to drive as if the roads are covered with ice because of hidden slick spots.
Last week, freezing rain brought some chaos to the region, with classes being cancelled at both local schools boards and over a dozen flights in and out London being either delayed or cancelled. Another round of winter weather is on the way for Greater Danbury and the Hudson Valley with snow and some mixed precipitation. Blue=Winter Storm Watch, Purple=Winter Weather Advisory.
