What The Squall, A ‘Life-Threatening’ Snow Squall Headed To Harlem And All Of NYC

A dangerous snow squall threatens to cause a whiteout from Harlem to Hollis on Wednesday afternoon reports Patch. The sudden, gusty snowfall could create “life-threatening” travel conditions just before the evening rush hour, the National Weather Service warns.

The five boroughs will be under a snow squall warning until 4 p.m. The system could eliminate visibility in the snow and batter the city with wind gusts as strong as 50 MPH, the weather service says.

“It could be very brief and very concentrated — maybe only 15-30 minutes — but it will be very intense and may cause whiteout conditions,” Mayor Bill de Blasio warned on Twitter.

The mayor warned travelers to use mass transit and avoid driving during the nasty weather. After-school activities are still on for Wednesday, he said.

The squall is expected to hit before temperatures plummet into the single digits by Wednesday night before subzero wind chills strike early Thursday morning.
