Snow kidding. folks... this is not a Treat, but Mother Nature's Trick!
NYC has the potential for up to 5, inches of snowfall, but because the ground is warm, these flakes are likely to melt on contact.
While the city is no stranger to frigid Octobers, snow before Halloween is a rarity.
According to historians, our earliest snowfall in the city was a paltry 0.5 inches in Central Park on Oct. 15, 1876. There have only been three October days with measurable snowfall since the city began keeping records in 1869.
