There's snow on the ground, as well as patches of ice—it's supposed to stay in the mid-20s, 20 degrees below the average, today—and that's making things difficult for drivers. On Long Island, a 10-car crash closed down the Northern State in Dix Hills, while the Southern State was closed due to crashes. The Long Island Expressway was closed at multiple exits for accidents and the Hutch and Cross County are supposedly very bad as well.
Luckily, most of the accidents are reportedly "fender-benders" and have resulted in only minor injuries. The colder conditions also mean that train platforms may be icy and slippery—Newsday reports that LIRR workers were telling riders to use caution when entering and exiting trains.
One to two inches of snow is expected for New York City, while there may be four inches outside the city.
