Due to the unusually warm weather, the Parks Department has had to cancel Winter Jam 2012. It is too warm to make snow which was the foundation for almost all of the planned activities.
Winter Jam has been an official NYC Parks tradition for the past ten years, and has afforded thousands of New Yorkers the opportunity to try out winter sports for free. We are grateful to our partners and sponsors for their support. We hope that next winter’s weather patterns are frostier!
NYC Parks encourages you to still get outdoors this month by visiting one of the six skating rinks in City parks, or checking out a nature program offered by the Urban Park Rangers.
For more information about things to do in our parks or in our recreation centers, explore the rest of our website or call 311.

This winter season, NYC Service is hoping to enlist community organizations in an effort to help homebound seniors and the disabled clear the snow in front of their homes. Please join us in our continued effort to make our City safer for all people while promoting our “neighbors helping neighbors” policy. NYC Service has already worked with the Department for the Aging to identify seniors that would need this last resort service. NYC Service is currently building a list of community groups and organizations in order to deploy volunteers to meet the needs of seniors in their neighborhood.
If your volunteer group or community organizations would like to help the elderly and the disabled in your neighborhood, please send an email to Gary Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) released the following details earlier this morning in anticipation of the upcoming snow fall predicted for Tuesday evening, January 11th and Wednesday, January 12th:
Overview: The forecast is calling for the potential of a significant winter storm impacting New York City with snow accumulations between 8 and 12 inches accompanied by strong winds and wind gusts which will cause blowing and drifting of snow.
Timing: Snow expected to arrive Tuesday evening around 10 PM, with the heaviest amount of precipitation falling late Tuesday overnight into Wednesday morning from midnight to 9 AM. Snow will taper off by late Wednesday afternoon during the evening rush hour. As the area of heaviest snowfall exits the area, winds will increase during the morning and early afternoon on Wednesday, resulting in the blowing and drifting of accumulated snowfall.
Precipitation: The highest forecast confidence (90%) calls for total snow accumulation of between 8 to 12 inches for New York City. If the storm tracks west, a total accumulation of 12 to 18 inches is possible (10% confidence). Snow type is expected to be light early during the snow event. As temperatures get warmer on Wednesday snow type will become a wetter, heavier snow.
Precipitation Rate: There is a possibility of 1 inch or more per hour during the periods of midnight to 9 AM on Wednesday. Should any bands of heavier snowfall set up over the City, hourly rates of 1 to 2 inches an hour are possible.
Temperatures: Upper 20′s Tuesday night to low 30′s Wednesday morning. Temperatures will barely reach the freezing point during daytime periods from Wednesday through Sunday.
Winds: Sustained winds of 10 MPH Tuesday afternoon with winds increasing overnight to 10-20 MPH sustained with some gusts near 20-30 MPH by the Wednesday morning rush hour. Winds are not expected to reach Blizzard Warning criteria; however, near blizzard-like conditions are possible during heavy snow bands.
Coastal Flooding: Coastal flooding is possible as the storm passes through. Flooding will likely be minor due to the speed of the storm.
