Officials: Snow will make a ‘nasty’ commute
Schools remain open; decision will come in morning
New Yorkers are bundling up for a winter storm expected to arrive in time for tomorrow’s morning commute, but city officials said this afternoon they’re prepared to handle the slush storm.
National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory warning of strong wind gusts and up to five inches of snow, sleet and freezing rain, beginning at 5 a.m.
The advisory lasts until 6 a.m. Wednesday, though the snow is expected to peter out just in time for Tuesday’s evening commute, turning to rain.
“Here’s the simple way to say it: tomorrow will be nasty in New York City,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio during a press conference in Albany this afternoon.
