The New York City is expected to see light snowshowers overnight that could affect the Friday morning commute.

Only about an inch of snow is expected to fall, said National Weather Service meteorologist David Stark.

“We’re not looking at anything too heavy,” said Stark, adding the storm will move through the area quickly.

The Department of Sanitation issued a snow alert starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday to prepare snow plows, salt spreaders and crews for removal.


Temperatures will drop and winds will pick up on Friday afternoon. Friday’s high is forecasted to be 32 degrees, and the temperature will drop to the low 20s in the mid-afternoon with high winds of up to 35 mph putting the wind chill in the single digits.

Saturday will be colder, ranging between 12-14 degrees early in the day and rising to the lower 20s. Temperatures on Sunday will warm up to the lower 30s.

Stark said NWS is monitoring a weather system that could move in Sunday night, with a 50 percent chance of snow.
