As we mentioned yesterday, the last day of 2009 will be wet and messy. The snow looks beautiful now, but it is expected to turn into sleet and precipitation by the evening—sorry, New Year's Eve revelers.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory, noting that 1-3 inches is expected in NYC and Long Island before it mixes with rain while 2-4 inches may fall north of the city. And if you happen to capture the lovely snow, you can share your photos with us by emailing them to or tagging them "gothamist" on Flickr.
