STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The first flurries of the winter season were reported in New York City, the National Weather Service said.
“We observed our first flakes of the season at the office this morning!”, the agency wrote on twitter. Reports of light snow were noted across the five boroughs Sunday morning before mixing with rain after sunrise, the agency said.
We observed our first flakes of the season at the office this morning! Light snow showers and flurries are working their way through the area. Some rain will begin to mix in with the second round of shower activity after daybreak. #NYCwx #NYwx #CTwx #NJwx pic.twitter.com/MkPTVyckHQ
However, the first snowfall of the season ended up being brief with only minor accumulation.
National Weather Service climate sites in New York and New Jersey tracked the first snowfall of the season, with one-tenth of an inch being recorded in Newark while other sites — such as the ones at Central Park and JFK airport — received “trace” amounts of snow that were too small to measure.
Light snow showers were seen on Staten Island, according to social media posts.
Forecasters previously predicted Sunday would feature the first snow of the season before a cold week sweeps across Staten Island.
It wasn't much, but many in the Tri-State saw their first flakes of the season fly this morning.
Here's what our climate sites recorded:
❄️Newark – 0.1"
❄️Central Park – Trace
❄️LaGuardia – Trace
❄️JFK – Trace
❄️Islip – Trace
❄️Bridgeport – Trace
Trace = too small to measure.
