About 1,500 people on Staten Island lost power over the weekend because of the icy storms, according to the New York Post.
Snow began falling early Saturday, just after 2 a.m. About three inches managed to build up, the Post reported.
It was a much delayed first-snow-of-winter. Though we had snow within the last few months, it wasn’t winter yet. The most recent snowfall took place in October.
This was a mild snow, and we still expect mild weather. Lows for the next five days are expected to be only just below freezing.
