Winter Weather Advisory In Affect For Most Of The Area; Isolated Northern Spots Could Get 5 Inches

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert for Monday morning.

The National Weather Service has also issued a Winter Weather Advisory from 2 a.m. to 2 p.m., with 1-3 inches expected in the city and higher amounts possible locally in higher elevations throughout the early part of the day, CBS2’s Elise Finch reported.

The quick-moving disturbance to our south will bring the bulk of the snow showers early Monday morning, with the best bet for any accumulations north of New York City, predominantly on grassy and unpaved surfaces.

Rain and sleet would make driving to work Monday morning slushy, while temps in the afternoon will be stuck in the 40s.

All winter weather information and information about the City’s response to the storm can be found by visiting the City’s Severe Weather website at or by calling 311. New Yorkers are also encouraged to sign up for the Notify NYC, the City’s free emergency notification system. Through Notify NYC, New Yorkers can sign up to receive phone calls, text messages, and emails alerts about severe weather events and emergencies.
