After months of unseasonably warm weather, it appears winter is descending on the city.
Between three to six inches of snow is expected to fall in the city. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service (NWS). The forecasts call for the snow to begin late tonight through Saturday afternoon. The advisory lasts through Saturday.
After last winter’s record-breaking snowfalls, New Yorkers have seen nothing more than flurries this season. More than 60 inches of powder fell on the city last winter. The relatively-warm season has been snow-free with the only accumulation falling on Halloween weekend.
The NWS warns that driving conditions may be dangerous due to snow-slicked roads and limited visibility.
The Department of Sanitation has also issued a snow alert initiating DNSY personnel to begin preparing snow removal equipment.
Due to the impending snow alternate side parking regulations are suspended citywide on Saturday. Parking meters and all other posted parking restrictions will remain in effect.
