Title: BLIZZARD WATCH
Post by: BoroCall on March 12, 2017, 10:06:39 PM
It's Coming.........

Notification issued 3/12/17 at 8:15 PM. NYC Emergency Management advises New Yorkers to prepare for a nor'easter which is forecast to bring cold temperatures, 12-18 inches of snow, and winds of 20-30mph with gusts up to 50mph to NYC beginning late Monday night through Tuesday, 3/14. This will create dangerous travel conditions including slippery roads and visibilities of one quarter mile or less at times. New Yorkers are advised to stay off the roads except in the event of an emergency. If you must travel, use mass transit.


    The National Weather Service has issued the following:

        Blizzard Watch in effect for NYC from 12AM on 3/14 to 12AM on 3/15

        Coastal Flood Watch for BK, SI, & southern QN from 8AM-12PM on 3/14. Tides 2-3 feet above normal are possible for the south shore bays of Long Island and the lower New York Harbor. During a Coastal Flood Watch, minor flooding of the most vulnerable shore roads and/or adjacent properties is possible due to the height of the storm tide, wave splash-over, and/or effects of the full moon.


NYC Department of Transportation has announced that Alternate Side Parking regulations are suspended on Tuesday, 3/14 and Wednesday, 3/15. Meters remain in effect.
