Ol’ man winter isn’t done just yet.

The National Weather Service (NWS) forecast snow from 2 to 4 inches, starting from this evening and continuing through Monday as temperatures drop to the 20s.

The NWS warned that the snow will bring hazardous travel due to reduced visibility and slippery roads, “especially during the Monday morning commute.”

The Department of Transportation suspended alternate side parking for Monday to help with snow removal. However, parking meters remain in effect.

In preparation for inclement weather, the city’s Department of Sanitation has issued a “snow alert,” starting at 11 a.m. The agency said its plows and spreaders will be ready.

He did an excellent job; the snow was moved from the streets right away.
Anthony Palermo

The new mayor did a good job with the snow; hopefully we will continue doing well in other areas as well.
Rocco Manzolillo

It seems he did fine. I noticed there were fewer streets that were unplowed.  I’m not sure if that would mean giving the mayor credit or if he just has good people working for him, regardless it got done.
Linda Gold

I was surprised that schools were actually closed, but I love a snow day.  I thought everything was cleaned up well the next day.
Jennifer Fioranelli

It seemed everything was adequately done. There were trucks cleaning up throughout the night and day.
George Nichols

Around here everything was cleared out and I feel de Blasio handled it more effectively than Bloomberg had done in the past.
Ethan Geffen

I think he did a good job cleaning up the snow.
Daphne Dimitriadiou

This was his first real test as mayor and I feel that he succeeded.  I did not notice any major problems in my neighborhood, so I feel he did a good job in cleaning up the snow.
