The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning citywide starting 7 p.m. Sunday to 6 p.m. Monday.
There will be a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain. The current forecast calls for 4 to 8 inches of snow, along with about one quarter of an inch of ice. Visibility is expected to be about one quarter mile or less at times.
With the snow set to start falling during the Sunday’s Big Game, during a storm briefing that afternoon Mayor de Blasio cautioned New Yorkers leaving Super Bowl celebrations.
“..You’re going to have to be ready to be careful at that point,” he said.
The mayor also warned that the biggest threat of the storm would be ice, which would come in the early morning hours Monday. He asked people to stay out of city parks tomorrow morning because of danger of falling limbs and to stay off the roads and use mass transit if possible.
The MTA system is expected to be running smoothly, de Blasio said, but delays are possible.
He also said the city’s public schools are expected to be open on Monday, but parents should check first thing in the morning to confirm.
Alternate side parking is suspended on Monday to help with snow removal, but payment at parking meters remains in effect.
This winter storm warning comes less than a week after the city was hit with the storm, dubbed Juno, which initially threatened to drop two to three feet of snow throughout the tri-state area.
This caused a state of emergency and travel ban to be issued on all state and local roads for 13 New York Counties for almost nine hours. The storm also had the MTA shut down its entire subway, bus and commuter rail systems. It was reportedly the first time the transit agency has suspended service for the winter weather.
However, at the last minute Juno moved eastward and totals in Queens reached only around a foot in most areas.
