MIDTOWN — Want a little snow with that blistering cold?
Along with a chance of record-low temperatures this weekend, the city could see 4 inches of snow Saturday night into Sunday as a low-pressure system sweeps into the area from the northwest, the National Weather Service said.
Light snow is expected early Saturday afternoon, intensifying around 6 p.m. and continuing into Sunday morning, forecasters said.
When it finally lets up around sunrise, the city may have 4 inches on the ground.
The city suspended alternate side parking rules on Friday and Saturday to facilitate snow removal, but parking meters will still be in effect.
A high wind watch is also in effect from midnight Sunday until 6 p.m. as gusts could reach 60 mph, a service spokesman said.
The daytime high Friday is supposed to reach just 15 degrees, with frigid temperatures lasting throughout the weekend as a cold air mass makes its way southeast from Canada, forecasters said.
The low Sunday night could dip down to 2 degrees and then bring on the coldest Feb. 16 since 1888 as temperatures plummet to 1 degree early Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
