New York City will suspend outdoor dining starting at 2pm on Wednesday due to a major snow storm heading towards the city. 

A powerful nor’easter is forecast to barrel through New York on Wednesday into Thursday and it could dump eight inches of snow on the Big Apple. 

The city will notify restaurants, which are already closed to indoor dining due to surging coronavirus cases, when they can reopen for roadway seating for outdoor dining.  

‘Based on the current forecast, the City estimates that this Snow Alert will be over on Thursday evening, allowing restaurants to reopen, but this may change to the morning of Friday, December 18 based on actual accumulations and roadway conditions,’ the city’s sanitation department said Monday.

‘At this time, the City is not asking that restaurants remove any barriers or structures for roadway dining,’ the department added. 

New York City’s Department of Sanitation issued Monday a Snow Alert for Wednesday starting at 2pm.

The department is already preparing with salt spreader vehicles ‘filled and ready too go’ and collection trucks that will be turned into snow plows once two inches of snow has fallen.

If needed the department will use its ‘brine trucks’ to apply liquid salt to roads that are susceptible to freezing quickly.
