It's a Nor'easter with two parts. Round one kicked off on Sunday (December 1). Now get ready for round two today.

There's a reason Winter Storm Warnings will remain in effect for our area until Tuesday morning at 7:00 AM. This nor'easter is hitting us with a one, two punch.

With what started as some light snow, sleet, and rain, now comes the second part that will reportedly bring us mostly snow.

The National Weather Service is calling for the snow to continue throughout the day with a possible two to four inches likely, then more snow tonight with another two to four inches possible.

So if you do the math, looks like we could see anywhere from four to eight inches of snow before the storm moves out of the area by early Tuesday morning.

Now if you're by the coast, you'll see a little less in the way of snowfall, but if you're in some of the northern areas, the difference could be substantial.

Inland locations can expect four to six inches of accumulation, with six to eight inches possible in parts of Northern Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Northern Fairfield Counties.

Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan and Ulster Counties in the Hudson Valley and also Litchfield County in Connecticut could see anywhere from eight inches to more than a foot of snow.

Expect the snow to taper off very early Tuesday morning, just in time for the morning commute. The rest of the work week looks a lot better with clouds and sun and temperatures staying closer to 40 degrees.
