The National Weather Service (NOAA) has issued an advisory stating that New England can expect a spring storm on April Fool's Day on Friday owing to a low pressure system coming from the southeast.
The service had earlier issued a warning for the storm for the north and west suburbs of New York city. Although, the warning has been removed, the advisory is still in effect for portions of north-east New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley and interior south-west Connecticut.
Accumulations of up to 3 to 5 inches of snow are expected with localized higher amounts at elevations above 1000 feet.
Reuters reported that New York's Hudson Valley and Catskills, as well as northern New Jersey could receive five to 10 inches of snow until noon on Friday. However, coastlines along eastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut should get mainly rain.
The heavy snow accompanied by rain could restrict visibilities leading to hazardous travel conditions.
