More Snow Falling on New York City

It’s going to be a slippery day on the roads.

Snow is falling, with 1 to 3 inches expected for most of the tri-state area.  The eastern end of the Long Island will see the worst of the storm, with 6 inches or more possible.

"I'm ready for summer," one woman told WOR's Alice Stockton-Rossini in Flushing, Queens.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through noon on Tuesday in New York City and Western Long Island.  A Winter Storm Warning is in place for Central and Eastern Long Island until 6 p.m.

"No more.  This is the last one," one woman said.

This is the third nor’easter this month.  Last week, more than 20 inches of snow fell on parts of the tri-state area.  Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said in that storm, the snow didn’t start falling until midday, meaning people were already out on the roads.  He told WOR's "Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning" he hopes people don't make the same mistake today.

“Travel conditions are difficult, so we're encouraging people to stay off the road if you can.  If you have to get out there, just take it real easy because these are the kind of conditions where you can see a lot of accidents happening,” Bellone said.

The last storm led to hundreds of thousands of power outages throughout the area.  Some of those people didn’t get their lights turned back on until just the past couple days.

That caused New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy to call for an investigation of the state’s power companies.
