One of the Tri-State area's biggest winter storms in years dumped up to 30-inches of snow on the region Sunday night through Tuesday morning, bringing travel to a halt on the East Coast and burying Central Park in one of the largest snowfalls in city history.
New York City public schools are set to return to in-person learning on Wednesday. Sanitation pickups will be delayed until Thursday. Alternate side parking rules were suspended through Saturday.
Coronavirus vaccine appointments in New York City and New Jersey are also postponed due to snow at least until Wednesday.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that individual vaccination sites would call people to reschedule and honor all missed appointments.
The powerful nor'easter brought more than 17 inches of snow to Central Park (one of the 20 heaviest accumulations in city history) and over 30 inches in Morris and Sussex counties in New Jersey.
Light showers were expected to linger through Tuesday afternoon, ending the 36-hour blitz.
The Tri-State will get some relief later this week with gradually warmer temperatures Wednesday and Thursday and a chance of rain on Friday with highs in the 40s.
But temperatures will dip again on Saturday and another storm system appears to be headed for the area on Sunday. Forecasters say it's too early to predict what impact that weather system will have.
