There have been chilly outbreaks, here and there, but a Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather Service, opens the gate for winter on Roosevelt Island.

3 to 5 Inches of Snow Predicted
The National Weather Service says the chances for snow are 100% with the only variable being “How much?” The Winter Weather Watch predicts 3 to 5 inches in a narrow band through New York City out to the tip of Long Island. Flakes may begin floating in after midnight, then pick up in heavier bands as daybreak approaches on Friday.
That’s plenty enough for snowmen and sleds racing down the slopes on the Cornell Tech campus. What’s more, it’s likely to stick around through Saturday. Warmer air comes with some rain on Sunday before a prolonged colder spell settles in behind it.
