The snowstorm that rolled into the Big Apple Thursday morning is set to dump between 6 and 10 inches on the city — and will stick around through much of the day Friday, according to forecasters.
Flakes began falling in New York City early Thursday after the first heavy band of snow centered just to the south of the city — with parts of Central New Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania, around Philadelphia, already seeing a few inches, AccuWeather senior meteorologist Dan Pydynowski said.
New Yorkers can expect a heavier dump later Thursday morning, he said.
“For the rest of the day today, we’re going to see snow at least off and on,” Pydynowski said.
“I think some of the heavier snow that’s still to the south and west of New York will get to the city little later this morning. But the bottom line is that we’re going to see a pretty steady snowfall throughout the day today, especially later this morning into the first part of this afternoon.”
Some respite will come in the afternoon but Pydynowski said the city will see more snow overnight and throughout a lot of the day Friday.
“So it’s a long-duration storm,” he told The Post.
While 6 to 10 inches is still expected, the high end of that estimate may end up slightly to the south of the city, the forecaster said.
As a result, the morning commute is set up to be more treacherous for those coming from areas south of the city, and not quite as troublesome for residents of the northern suburbs, he said.
“Certainly by this evening and tomorrow morning, as far as slippery roads, slippery sidewalks that certainly will be a concern,” Pydynowski said.
Temperatures are expected to stay in the upper 20s through the day Thursday and reach the lower 30s Friday.
“Light, intermittent snow” is set to continue Friday, with the storm expected to peter out by the late afternoon or early evening.
The snow comes as New Yorkers continue to dig out from several recent storms. Excluding this new system, about 34 inches of snow has fallen so far this season in Central Park, according to Pydynowski.
“We’re sitting at almost two times where we should be for this time of year,” he said.
