NYC Emergency Management

NYC Emergency Management Travel Advisory in effect citywide Friday, January 19

  •  Posted 5:31 PM EST, Thursday January 18, 2024 Updated 5:35 PM EST, Thursday January 18, 2024

The New York City Emergency Management Department has issued a citywide Travel Advisory for Friday, January 19, due to expected snow and possible impacts to the evening commute. The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook in effect citywide for the same period. Please visit nyc.gov/site/severeweather/index.page for the latest information.

School dismissal and drop-off will proceed as scheduled. Parents and guardians should plan for potential delays in busing and public transportation. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your principal or call 311.

Yellow bus service will proceed as usual, although it is possible there may be delays on individual routes.

Public School Athletic League (PSAL) events and afterschool activities will proceed as scheduled.

Light snow is expected throughout the day on Friday, January 19. Accumulating snowfall is expected to begin between 6:00 AM and 9:00 AM Friday morning and taper off in the afternoon, coming to an end sometime between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM. Snowfall totals of around 3 inches, at rates of a half inch an hour or less, are expected in New York City.

No impacts are anticipated for the morning commute, but snow and slush-covered roads in combination with low visibility conditions are likely for the Friday evening commute, resulting in potential travel delays.

The safety of our students, staff, and families as they travel to and from school is of the utmost importance. New Yorkers are encouraged to use public transportation during storm conditions and use caution when walking, biking, and driving and allow for additional travel time. 

There may be delays on MTA subway and bus routes. If you anticipate delays reaching your child’s school due to travel conditions, please reach out to your child’s teacher.

NYC Public Schools’ Central and field offices remain open. We urge staff to exercise caution when going outside and to use public transportation whenever possible.
