With up to 3 inches of snow predicted for Monday night, Mayor de Blasio is warning New Yorkers to “get ready for a nasty commute on the way home.”
“It’s going to be a sloppy one later on,” Hizzoner said on WCBS 880, urging commuters to leave their cars at home and take public transportation.
The Big Apple will get 1 to 3 inches of snow tonight, according to the National Weather Service. The morning’s rain is likely to turn to snow by the afternoon, with temps in the 30s throughout the day.
Alternate side parking was cancelled Monday.
De Blasio said the city has yet to make a decision about tomorrow. He said he was hopeful schools would remain open Tuesday.
The city is ready if the weather gets worse than predicted, pointing to 1,500 plows that are ready to hit the streets, the mayor said.
“It could be deceptive,” he said on NY1 as drizzle fell on the city in the morning. “Take the storm seriously . . . Recognize that we’re going to see snow later on that’s going to make the evening commute really tough.”
The brunt of the storm, the first big one of the winter, hit upstate, with a foot of snow falling on Albany.
