After a dearth of snow the last two years, winter is making up for lost time -- ish -- in the New York City area.

Friday stayed sunny and clear for the most part, though wind gusts up to 50 mph and "feels like" temperatures in the 20s made make it feel less cheery. The next chance for snow came late Friday into Saturday.

Most of the snow was expected to accumulate south of New York City, though the forecast shifted to predict more than originally expected for the five boroughs. Up to 5 inches was possible south of I-78 in New Jersey, where a winter weather advisory was issued.

A period of light to moderate snow was projected to start falling around midnight, staying steady before wrapping around 7 a.m., but there's a chance we could see on-and-off snow showers linger into the day.

Expect about 2 inches of snow in the city -- which wouldn't be enough for sanitation officials to send in the plows -- and the rest of the tri-state. Alternate side parking is suspended Saturday.

Ahead of the overnight snowfall, that winter weather advisory was expanded beyond southern and central New Jersey to include Long Island and the five boroughs. Check the latest weather alerts here.

What's next?

Colder air moves in Saturday night and skies will clear. The rest of the holiday weekend remains sunny and dry, though Sunday may be a bit breezy. Then we look forward to a gradual warm-up to 50 next week.
