Second snowstorm of the season hits the Bronx
(12/15/03) PARKCHESTER - Winter may begin in a week, but the Bronx has already been hit with a second round of winter weather.
Five to seven inches of snow accumulated across the Bronx on Sunday afternoon, and the storm changed to heavy sleet and rain in the late afternoon.
A winter weather advisory is in effect through midmorning Monday for the Bronx and the New York City metropolitan area. While most of the precipitation has ended, pockets of freezing drizzle, possibly mixed with light snow, may make for a slippery commute.
Sanitation officials say garbage pickup will run on a normal schedule on Monday.
