Less than a week after a blizzard dropped two feet of snow across the North Fork, another storm is headed to the area. The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Watch this morning that will be in effect from Sunday evening into Monday afternoon.
Update, 1:15 p.m.: East Main Street and Pulaski Street are both re-opened.
Original story: Parts of downtown will be closed this morning as highway department crews clear excess snow on the roads in preparation for further snowfall tomorrow.
Highway Superintendent Gio Woodson said East Main Street will be closed from Roanoke Avenue to McDermott Avenue, and Pulaski Street will be closed from Osborn Avenue to Marcy Avenue.
Mr. Woodson said the closures will start about 7:30 a.m. and last until about noon.
The National Weather Service is predicting that anywhere from four to eight inches of snow will hit early Thursday morning, affecting tomorrow morning’s commute. A winter storm watch is in effect starting at midnight Wednesday through 6 a.m. Friday.
