A beautiful snowfall for Roosevelt Island. Made for fun


At last, we get a beautiful snowfall that seems genuinely designed for fun. Temperatures are mild. Winds are light. It’s perfect for sledding at Cornell Tech or a walk among lightly snow coated trees.

With just 2 or 3 inches predicted before the fall ends at midday, temperatures will linger in the low 30s. That’s plenty enough for sledding and, being a “wet snow,” it’s also perfect for building snowmen and snow forts. It packs together easily.

And here’s a bonus. With a couple of chilly days ahead, the snow will stay with us into Wednesday. That’s when warmer weather returns with the swing toward spring. But for today, it’s beautiful, just right for a Sunday on Roosevelt Island.
