New snowstorm to drop 6 inches in city

By Juan Soto

The National Weather Service issued Sunday morning a snowstorm warning in effect from 7 p.m. Sunday until 6 p.m. Monday.

The storm can drop up to 6 inches of snow in the city. The National Weather Service advisory also calls for icy conditions.

Temperatures will be in the upper 20s with wind gusts ranging from 15 mph to 25 mph.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said that a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain will create slick and hazardous travel conditions on Monday. He noted the snowfall drop in the city will be between 2 and 7 inches, according to a National Weather Service forecast.

“Tomorrow [Monday] expect your commute to take more time,” de Blasio said.

Alternate side of the street parking will be suspended Monday.

This new weather warning comes less than a week after another storm hit the city. Snow accumulations hit the 13-inch mark in Glendale and the 12-inch mark in Bayside and Woodside.

The city was prepared to get between two and three feet of snow, a forecast that had Gov. Andrew Cuomo shut down subway service for about 10 hours and had Mayor Bill de Blasio put a non-emergency driver’s ban in place for one night.
