Another winter storm is working its way through the Tri-State today. A winter storm warning went into effect from midnight Wednesday, and will be in place until 6 a.m. Friday for much of the area.
The model numbers for snow totals all increased in the nighttime hours. The estimates at 11 p.m. called for 6 to 10 inches of snow in the city and its immediate surrounding environs, 3 to 6 inches on Long Island, 8 to 14 inches to the north and west, and 10 to 16 inches for northwest New Jersey, the far north suburbs and much of upstate New York.
The system will begin first with light, fluffy snow, followed by rain, and finally wet flakes. It will not end until between 2 and 4 a.m. Friday.
And the totals could end up being much higher – particularly if the rain comes later.
New York City public schools will be open as usual today.
But in advance of the storm, the city has suspended alternate side parking regulations through Shabbos, Feb. 15. There is no alternate side parking on Sunday and Monday is a federal holiday. Read more here.
