Winter Storm Nemo Hits NYC
It’s the first big snow storm of the season and the first large weather event since Hurricane Sandy hit NYC. Will the city be better prepared for the upcoming blizzard after last year’s poor handling of the “Snowmageddon” storm?
The current predictions are for around 10 inches of snow for NYC, beginning in the late afternoon and ramping up to blizzard conditions overnight. In reality, city dwellers know that the impact will be quite different once the snow hits the ground, with winds blowing snow through the streets and constant traffic turning the streets into slush.
Mayor Bloomberg has already issued a Severe Weather Advisory for the city, which outlines precautions that the public should take and how city agencies are preparing for the storm. Alternate Side Parking is suspended citywide through Sunday and NYC after-school programs and PSAL sports programs have been cancelled.
