Light Snow Heading for the City

Monday, November 26, 2012

New York City's sanitation department says it's preparing for a trace to an inch of snow Tuesday. Workers were loading salt spreaders today on Monday in anticipation of the wintry weather.

The latest forecasts from the National Weather Service call for cloudy skies in Manhattan on Monday night, followed by light snow in the early morning.

Rain and snow are in the forecast for Tuesday, and temperatures will be in the mid-30s. The wintry mix may continue into Tuesday night, before turning to a slight chance of light snow again after midnight, according to NWS projections.

The colder weather comes as Mayor Michael Bloomberg estimates more than 800 storm-damaged apartment buildings are still without heat in the city, and about 500 don't have power, following Sandy. Most of the buildings are under six stories. In addition, an estimated 6,000 private homes also lack both heat and power, which the city is working to get restored.
