Commuters slid into work on wet, sloshy snow in New York and New Jersey. Central Park in Manhattan had 4 inches of accumulation late Friday morning, the Weather Channel reported, as residents of Passaic County, N.J., dug out from 7 inches of snow. The Bronx received 7 inches and parts of Westchester County were hit with more than a foot.

More than 141 flights had been canceled for New York’s LaGuardia airport, 106 at Newark Liberty International, and 97 at Logan in Boston as of 2:45 p.m. Friday, according to airline tracker Flight Aware.

The weather was forecasted to turn milder over the weekend, with meteorologists saying that temperatures on Saturday could break 50 degrees in the tri-state area. Highs would hover around the low 40s in Boston, the Weather Channel predicted.
