The four to six inches New Yorkers are expected to wake to Thursday should be the worst of the latest wintry blast to hit the city, and will taper off in the afternoon, forecasters say.
An official winter storm warning continues through 7 p.m. and while city schools will be open, field trips have been canceled.
Alternate side parking was already suspended for the day for the Jewish festival of Purim, but you still have to feed the meters. Trash and recycling collection will be delayed because of the snow, sanitation officials said.
Friday will be dry, with “unseasonably cold” temperatures not climbing above the low teens on Friday morning, said David Roache, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Highs will be in the mid-20s on Friday afternoon.
Roache said New Yorkers can expect moderate temperatures above freezing on Saturday and Sunday, with sunny skies and temperatures in the high 30s and low 40s.
No snow is expected in the early part of next workweek … so far.
