"People should expect travel conditions to range from poor to extremely hard from Saturday to Saturday night in the storm's wake", according to AccuWeather's senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. With a brisk south wind, moisture is being pumped into the region. Shamburger says this is because the cold front will hit there sooner. "This could produce some snow, sleet and freezing rain", NWS forecasters said.

"The ground is completely frozen, so in the event of a rain event, the water has no place to go", said Frank Kelley, deputy fire chief, Rocky Hill Fire Department. The snow will taper to snow showers Saturday evening.

A rainy, cold, snowy stretch is set to wipe out the warm weather that the Lower Hudson Valley was treated to this week. Show is also likely Wednesday, with another chance of snow showers Thursday.
