NEW YORK, Feb 3 (APP) :After a period of fair weather, New Yorkers were hit by another snowstorm Monday amid predictions of 10 inches of snow in parts of the tri-state area – New York, New Jersey and Connecticut- by the end of the day. The National Weather Service cautioned New Yorkers and most of the residents in neighbouring States not to leave home unless in emergencies. The storm is expected to wrap up by the end of the day. New York’s Department of Sanitation issued a snow alert for Monday as five to eight inches are expected to fall in the city. Many of the passengers who flew to New Jersey to watch the Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday are stranded, as their flights were either delayed or canceled. Some 260 flights were reported canceled at Newark’s airport in New Jersey and over 165 at LaGuardia airport in New York. Today’s snowstorm is the first of three expected in the city this week.
