Winter may still be more than a month away, but the city’s Department of Sanitation has already issued its first snow alert of the season.

The alert begins at 8 p.m. on Thursday, and the department has its salt spreaders ready to go in case of bad weather.

With temperatures hovering in the mid-30s, however, the forecast is only calling for the possibility of less than half an inch of snow overnight. Rain is mainly expected to fall, and taper off by Friday morning.
