NYC Sanitation issues snow alert

NEW YORK (AP) -- Sanitation officials have issued a snow alert ahead of expected precipitation in New York City.  The Department of Sanitation says in a statement Monday agencies have been alerted for possible snow beginning Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Officials say agencies should prepare for a potential response to heavy downfall by loading salt spreaders and lining up personnel as needed.  But National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Pollina says rain will begin falling Tuesday afternoon around 3 p.m., turning into snow by 6 p.m. or later.

He says not much is expected to fall, describing the predicted downpour as no more than a "coating."

He says the high temperature on Tuesday will be in the mid-40s, dropping to the low 30s by the evening.
