Weather service forecaster Bob Oravec said a mix of snow and rain would move northward up the East Coast. ‘It is a fast-moving storm,’ Oravec said.

Temperatures in New York City are expected to drop from the mid-30s on Sunday afternoon to the 20s overnight, and remain below freezing until Tuesday. 

‘Some of the snow may melt as it falls, especially on paved surfaces during the daylight hours on Sunday, and this can cut down on the accumulation somewhat in these metro areas,’ said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Pydynowski. 

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday’s snowfall, which started at around 9am in the city, would not close all of the COVID-19 vaccination sites.
