For many, the passing of Thanksgiving lends itself as a marker for the official departure of autumn and the welcoming of winter, though the first day of winter, on the solstice, is actually December 21.

Well, for New Yorkers, it seems that Mother Nature shares that sentiment—at least this year.

That’s right, the five boroughs can expect a sloppy, messy wintry mix of snow and rain tonight and tomorrow, which is sure to bog down traffic and make for some inconvenient commutes.

What usually happens with these early season snowfalls is that people panic, and hit the roads in force early. Consider yourself warned.

As always, the following forecast is courtesy of our friends at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which could be found at

Tonight: We’ll have a chance of snow after 3 a.m., with increasing clouds, a low around 36 degrees and west wind at 3 to 8 mph. The chance of precipitation is 40 percent.

Tuesday: Rain and snow are expected, becoming all rain after noon. The high is near 40 degrees, with light and variable wind becoming north 5 to 9 mph in the morning. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent, and little or no snow accumulation is expected.

Tuesday Night: There is a chance of rain, mainly before 9 p.m., but otherwise, the night will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 33 degrees and north wind at around 10 mph. The chance of precipitation is 30 percent.

Wednesday: The day will be partly sunny, with a high near 41 degrees and northwest wind at 9 to 11 mph.
