Here’s everything you need to know about Tuesday morning’s commute, whether you’re traveling on the ground or by air.
Timeline: Hour-by-hour look at tomorrow’s commute
The incoming winter storm is expected to disrupt travel along the Interstate 95 corridor.
The bulk of the heavy snow will occur just as the Tuesday morning commute gets underway, making for treacherous travel on major roads and highways in the region.
“It really dumps out the snow during the commute for you tomorrow, so it’s the Tuesday morning, trying to get around thing that’s going to be difficult, if not impossible. This heavy snow does come together,” FOX 5 NY’s Mike Woods said.
The FOX Forecast Center said snowfall rates could approach 1 to 3 inches per hour during that time. With snowfall rates that high, it will quickly accumulate on roads, only adding to the dangerous driving conditions.
Visibility will also be limited to under a half-mile in the heaviest snow bands.
Snow will continue throughout the day Tuesday and will likely begin to pull away from the region during the evening commute.
Will NYC alternate side parking be in effect?
New York City alternate side parking will be suspended Tuesday due to “winter storm operations,” according to the NYC Mayor’s Office.
Meanwhile, parking meters will remain in effect.
