The evening rush hour could be tricky. Be careful out there, especially on Route 8.
From the National Weather Service:
Special weather statement until 9 p.m. Friday
Accumulating snow during the evening commute
Light snow will develop this afternoon between 2 and 4 pm and continue through the evening commute.
Given the recent cold temperatures, roadways will become snow covered and slippery.
Around 1 to 2 inches of snow is forecast, with the highest amounts across the New York city metro, Long Island, and southern Connecticut.
Motorists are urged to use extra caution if traveling this evening.
The snow will gradually taper off from west to east after 7 p.m., ending around midnight across the east end of Long Island.
