New York City has issued a travel advisory and snow alert ahead of what is forecast to be the first measurable snow of the season Monday night into Tuesday morning.
The city is telling commuters to be careful “driving, walking, or biking, and allow for additional travel time as roads and walkways may become slippery during the morning and evening commute.”
The city is also warning of freezing precipitation between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

NYC Public Schools posted on X Monday night that “schools will remain open and drop off and dismissal will proceed as scheduled.”

The Department of Sanitation is responsible for clearing streets and bike lanes, but property owners must clear their sidewalks. With this being the first accumulating snow of the season in New York City, sanitation officials are reminder property owners to make sure sideways are passable within the required period of time.
If the snow stops falling between:
“When precipitation begins, our salt spreading operation will already be well underway, and we won’t stop until the City is safe and clear. We ask all New Yorkers to exercise caution and to give our plows and spreaders the space to do their critical work. It may have been 700 days since the last real snow hit the City, but we are more ready than ever,” said NYC Department of Sanitation Commissioner Jessica Tisch.
The NYC Department of Transportation said it suspended Alternate Side Parking Regulations for Tuesday, Jan. 16.
Parking meter payments will still be required.
