The storm could bring heavy snow to parts of Long Island, New York City, and the Hudson Valley regions beginning in the evening of Friday, Jan. 28, according to an announcement from Gov.Kathy Hochul.
Some areas could see between 6 and 12 inches of snow by the night of Saturday, Jan. 29.
"A winter storm system moving up the coast has the potential to deliver heavy snow, gusty winds, and create dangerous travel conditions across downstate locations this weekend," Hochul said. "We are monitoring forecasts and making emergency response preparations for whatever this storm system throws our way. As we head into the weekend, I encourage New Yorkers to closely follow their local weather forecasts, stay off the roads and avoid unnecessary travel."
Officials said the state Department of Transportation has readied the following assets:
- 1,596 large snowplows
- 322 large loaders
- 143 medium-duty plows
- 51 tow plows
- 39 snowblowers
- 23 pickup trucks with plows
- 20 graders
Thruway Authority also has prepared 681 operators and supervisors to respond with:
- 240 large snowplows
- 117 medium snowplows
- 11 tow plows
- 66 loaders across the state with more than 119,000 tons of road salt
Other agencies, including New York State Police, Department of Public Service, and Department of Environmental Conservation have also prepared emergency assets, officials said.
Areas farthest east (shown in dark blue in the image above), could see between 12 and 18 inches of snowfall, according to AccuWeather.com. Much of the region should see between 6 and 12 inches (shown in blue), with areas farther west seeing anywhere between 1 and 6 inches (lighter blue).

Braves rumors: 3 assets Atlanta can trade for Xander Bogaerts
Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse
We should expect future Atlanta Braves rumors involving these three assets and a trade for Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts.
The Atlanta Braves have a growing hole at the shortstop position. Dansby Swanson is having another underwhelming season without the power surge he had last season when he hit a surprising 27 home runs and drove in 88. While there aren’t any specific Braves rumors about how they may solve this growing issue, an obvious answer could be to call up the Boston Red Sox about Xander Bogaerts.
Bogaerts is expected to opt-out of his contract with the Red Sox then seek a new deal in free agency. The Braves, in their title defense, would benefit greatly from his bat in the lineup. As poorly as the Red Sox have played, Bogaerts has been one of the few players performing well.
Through his first 131 trips to the plate, Bogaerts has hit .347/.397/.463 with a pair of home runs. It’s an exceptional start to a Red Sox season without much direction. For the Braves, it’s a chance to pounce and strike a deal. Any of these three assets could help get them there.Braves rumors: In any Xander Bogaerts trade, Dansby Swanson should be included
Swanson becomes unneeded if the Braves do acquire Bogaerts. Moving him to the bench isn’t exactly perfect. It also gives the Red Sox an answer as to who plays out the year at shortstop for them in 2022 as they look to possibly just get through it as painless as possible.
Swanson for Bogaerts is hardly the final trade these two clubs would make as one is trending upward and the other watching as his value tanks.
It’s the start of the deal, however. One roster spot for another, Swanson is the first asset we could expect to appear in Braves rumors this summer.Next: The shortstop prospect to trade for Xander Bogaerts Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse
