A major snowstorm collides with the high-stakes special election for Congress in New York on Tuesday, potentially making voting difficult in the race to replace expelled former Rep. George Santos.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for New York and Long Island on Monday, predicting between four and ten inches of snow that could hamper traffic and reduce turnout on Election Day. City schools have already announced they will close, and many Nassau County school districts will likely follow suit.
Forecasters have struggled to pin down details of the storm in recent days. Before Monday, the heaviest snowfall was expected in central New England; Today, that area has moved south toward the tri-state area, although the details are still evolving.
