LOL REMEMBER WHEN DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME HAPPENED YESTERDAY AND WE THOUGHT SPRING WAS BASICALLY HERE?!
Well winter was feeling neglected because she was like, um guys it's still technically MY season for like, a whole week, so now she's acting out for attention..
BY DUMPING 20 INCHES OF SNOW ON NYC TOMORROW.
And this isn't your cute, average, run of the mill snow dump. We're talking full on blizzard warning. Like man the hatches, bunker down, stay indoors for real-zies blizzard warning.
Before you run out to get the bread and milk, here's what we know so far about tomorrow:
Light snow is expected to begin late tonight around 11 p.m., gradually intensifying into the morning.
Of course the heaviest snow will fall right around commute time, making travel conditions incredibly difficult and dangerous.
The heavy snowfall will continue from the morning into the afternoon, at a rate of about 2-4 inches per hour. Meanwhile, temperatures will stay below freezing throughout the storm, ranging between 20 to 30 degrees.
Oh and that's not all—this is a blizzard, remember? Throughout the day Tuesday, winds are expected to howl at an average of 20-30 mph, with gusts up to 35-50 mph. Flood warnings have been issued for coastal areas for Tuesday morning as well.
The storm will taper off late Tuesday night, and pick back up again Wednesday morning from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. All in all, forecasters are predicting anywhere between 12 to 20 inches of snow.
This storm is not f*cking around, and New York City officials are urging citizens to use extreme caution tomorrow.
Mayor De Blasio issued a statement saying, "We're preparing for a significant storm on Tuesday, and New Yorkers should also prepare for snow and dangerous road conditions. Besides the snow, it will be cold. We urge you to avoid unnecessary travel and help keep roads clear for Sanitation crews and first responders."
MTA and New Jersey Transit have issued statements detailing the extensive preparations for the inclement weather, but prepare for significant delays and cancellations. As of right now, New York schools have not announced any closures, but we're assuming kiddos are in for a snow day, because, come on.
And hey, if you're feeling annoyed at Winter Storm Stella for ruining any travel plans, we recommend falling to your knees and screaming, "STELLAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!" You'll feel better.[Feature Image Courtesy AMNY] [via Gothamist]
