AccuWeather: Sharply colder; some snow possible

AccuWeather forecast for NYC, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Wednesday will be cloudy and cold with a chance of some light snow.

Even though there is a coastal system well to the south, there is a little disturbance it is trying to interact with which could create a band of snow Wednesday morning -- especially north and west.

The snow gets stronger a little too late for any significant precipitation, but a trace to 1 inch could fall closer to NYC with 1 to 3 inches to the north and west.

Due to the possibility of snow in Wednesday's forecast, the New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a Winter Operations Advisory for Wednesday, starting at 6 a.m.

Snow showers are expected in the early morning, though no roadway accumulations are expected. The department's salt spreaders are filled and ready for use should conditions require.
