NEW YORK CITY — A hazardous snow storm is headed toward New York City and expected to hit early Wednesday morning, forecasters warned.
The city could get up to three inches of snow between 3 a.m. and 11 a.m., causing slippery conditions and slowing morning commutes, the National Weather Service predicts.
New York City issued a snow alert Tuesday and officials urged commuters to take mass transit during the storm.
“It’s going to be a very messy commute in the morning,” said Sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia. “We hope you won’t be driving.”
