Light snow flurries dusted roads and rails during the morning commute Tuesday, creating some slick spots and slow travel but adding no more than a thin coating of accumulation to the icy residue from last week's storm system in most areas.

Meteorologists say the flurries are expected to be move out by late morning to mid-afternoon, and the sluggish rate of precipiation means accumulation won't be a problem with this storm.

Another wave of snow flurries is expected to move into the area from the Great Lakes by the evening commute, but forecasters say the rate of snowfall will be similar to the one experienced earlier Tuesday and should remain a nonfactor as far as accumulation. 

Temperatures stay chilly Tuesday and will cap off in the high 20s to low 30s, where they're expected to stay overnight. Forecasters say Wednesday is expected to be a bit warmer, with temperatures likely surpassing 40 degrees under cloudy skies.

Forecasters are tracking another storm system expected to hit the region Friday. As was the case with many of the January storms, this system is expected to bring a mixture of rain, snow and freezing rain that will likely mean a slushy mix for New York City and light snow north and west of it.
