Hazardous Weather Outlook

Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service New York NY
407 AM EST Thu Dec 13 2018

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for southern Connecticut,
northeast New Jersey and southeast New York.

A quick moving low pressure system will result in light snow
this morning which transitions to rain later this morning into early
afternoon, with a low to moderate potential for a light snow
accumulation before changeover to rain. A dusting to around an inch
of snow is possible before a changeover to rain. Local snow amounts
of 1 to 2 inches cannot be ruled out, particularly across southwest
Connecticut. Hazardous travel conditions are possible in this area,
particularly away from the south coasts.

Dear neighbor,
 
As we continue to enjoy the holiday season, let's count our blessings and remember those who may not be so fortunate. I am proud to represent a community that always comes together to embrace the spirit of giving. This weekend as we light the first candle, I want to wish all those who celebrate a happy and joyful Chanukah.
 
As always, keep reading below for community updates, and be sure to follow us on  Facebook  and  Twitter.
 
Sincerely,
 
Get Grant Funding!
 
The Citizens Committee for NYC is one of the oldest micro-grant organizations in the country, and the impact of their decades of work shows every day across the Five Boroughs. We’re New Yorkers; we’re restless; we care deeply about our neighborhoods; and sometimes, we know we need resources a City agency or nonprofit can't provide. That’s where the Citizens Committee steps in, to encourage innovative, truly home-grown efforts to make our neighborhoods a better place. I’m excited to host an opportunity to find out how to apply for a grant!

Thank you to Western Beef Supermarket for their generosity in donating turkeys!!
 
I hope everyone has a great holiday season!
