Though today may feel like spring, the forecast shows we may not be out of the winter woods yet. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for snow in effect from 10 p.m. Thursday night through 2 p.m. Friday afternoon. The advisory is in effect for southern Connecticut, northeast New Jersey, the New York metro area, lower Hudson Valley and Long Island.
Snow is predicted with an accumulation of up to three to five inches possible. There could be hazardous or slippery travel due to snow, temperatures around freezing, and visibility up to half a mile at times.
