It’s not a snowpocalypse, but considering it’s only the second week of November and the city’s Sanitation Department has issued a “snow alert” for 8pm on Thursday, it might as well be.
According to the forecast, the temperature’s going to drop close to freezing tonight, turning the predicted light rain into a mix of snow flurries. That means it will officially be Snowvember when you wake up on Friday.
Just how much snow are we talking? The forecast says that the snow is only expected to hit the city for a few hours in the early morning, but from the ominous tone of the DSNY Tweet claiming that the “salt spreaders are loaded and ready to be deployed”, we could all wake up in a winter wonderland -- and not the kind where jolly, magic snowmen run around.
