Forecasters predict Thursday's slushy storm will dump up to 10 inches of snow on New York City.
The snow will pick up around 3 a.m. and may change to sleet or rain throughout the day, according to the National Weather Service.
Sleet and rain are expected between 10 a.m. and noon Thursday, and may lessen snow accumulation.
A 30-hour winter storm warning for heavy snow has been issued beginning at midnight tonight.
The weather service warns snowfall will make travel treacherous, but some 135,000 tons of salt is on hand to plow the city's 6,300 miles of streets, according to the Department of Sanitation. A snow alert was issued by the department beginning 1 a.m. Thursday.
Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 33 degrees Thursday with a low of 23 degrees overnight.
