The weather was crazy yesterday, right? Just awful. Ready to do it again? Too bad, because the atmosphere doesn't care: The second wave of this nor’easter started on Thursday night in New York City, and is expected to bring another two to four inches of snow. That’s on top of the nine to fourteen inches, from Central Park to Long Island respectively, that quickly turned to slush. The snow should be tapering off by 6 a.m., making Friday's commute slightly more bearable – but don't get used to it.
On top of the snow, rain, and sleet on Thursday, there was also thunder and lightning.

The only good thing we can say about the most recent batch of snow: It temporarily covered up this nasty gray mess from Thursday.

Federal agencies in D.C. are on a two-hour delay so people can give themselves plenty of time to get into work safely sneak in an episode of House of Cards.
After yesterday's controversy, this won't come as a shock:

Here's a look at how MTA workers dig out subway lines. The footage is from yesterday, so to get an idea of what preparations for Friday's commute look like, imagine the same thing happening in the dark.
According to the National Weather Service, Friday should be clear with a high of 41. At this point, that sounds downright tropical – especially because we may be in for another one to three inches of snow on Saturday, followed by a chance of snow on Sunday and Monday.
