New York City issued a snow alert, which takes effect Friday at 4 p.m. and continues through 7 a.m. Sunday. Pretreating of roadways begins Friday morning, with salt spreaders, brine and liquid pretreatment all part of the rollout. More than 2,000 plows will be at the ready.
In addition to the snow and wind, it will also be very cold Saturday, with a high of 22 in the city and RealFeels below zero. Lows will fall into the teens overnight, making cleanup difficult and travel challenging even after the storm passes.
