A winter storm will bring a mix of rain, snow, and sleet, windy conditions and coastal flooding to the New York City area, starting Wednesday afternoon.

A storm system that already brought snow, tornadoes and other severe weather to the central and southern U.S. will hit the Northeast today and tomorrow, further disrupting holiday travel.

Though, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), the snow is expected in the upper Ohio Valley and the interior Northeast, locally it will mainly bring rainy and windy conditions.

In New York City, a wintry mix of rain, snow, and sleet will start this afternoon, but is expected to turn to just rain after about 4 p.m., and could be heavy at times.

The NWS has also issued a high wind warning for the area, from 4 p.m. today until 6 a.m. Thursday, with 25 to 40 mph winds with gusts up to 60 mph. There is also a coastal flood warning from 8 p.m. Wednesday until midnight

The storm’s timing could also impact holiday travelers throughout the U.S.

As of this morning, the storm has already caused the cancellation of over 325 flights around the U.S., reported CBS New York, but at least one airline, US Airways, is waiving cancelation fess for travelers that need to change their flights because of the weather.
