Alternate-side parking: in effect today, suspended Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Till now, winter has been gentle.
We — you, dear reader, me and the people who bring you this newsletter — have been spared the season’s worst. But we are getting hammered with snow and sleet and more snow and freezing cold.
Here is the deal.
First, look out your window. It may still be snowing.
It will not snow much — maybe an inch — and should stop by midmorning or briefly turn to rain as the temperature climbs toward 40. (This being a New York Friday, give yourself lots of time to commute.)
Do not let this opening salvo fool you.
Saturday evening, more snow will fall.
This will be a “bigger” and more “powerful” storm than today’s, according to Faye Morrone, an intern at the National Weather Service who helpfully picked up the phone despite the federal shutdown.
Four inches may fall in New York City. Northern suburbs could see 10 inches. Early Sunday, the snow will turn to rain in the city.
Then comes the cold blast.
Temperatures will plummet Sunday afternoon, changing the last of the precipitation back to sleet or snow.
[Read about why there has not been as much snow as normal.]
Sunday night, the temperature will fall to around 8 degrees — the lowest since last January. Wind chills will drop below zero.
On Monday, it will get up to only about 17, then back down to 10.
By Tuesday, when you emerge from your igloo, the mercury will hit 30 degrees. If there’s still snow, maybe you can ski to work.Weinstein and his lawyer ‘agreed to part ways’
My colleague Jan Ransom reports:
Last month, Benjamin Brafman, a prominent defense lawyer, walked into the State Supreme Court building in Manhattan with his client Harvey Weinstein.
The pint-size lawyer and the hulking former movie producer walked past flickering cameras and scores of reporters. At the time they were a team.
But after a week of reports about the two men bumping heads, Mr. Brafman filed papers yesterday withdrawing as Mr. Weinstein’s counsel.
A joint statement said the two men “agreed to part ways amicably.”
But they have been at odds after Mr. Weinstein reached out to other lawyers in advance of his sex-crimes trial, slated to start in May, said a person familiar with the case. The arguments turned into shouting matches, the person said.
Assuming the judge approves the change, Mr. Weinstein plans to introduce his new legal team next week.
Mr. Brafman, Mr. Weinstein and the producer’s spokesman, Juda Engelmayer, declined to comment.
Mr. Weinstein, 66, is accused of raping one woman and performing oral sex on another against her will. Charges against him include two counts of predatory sexual assault, which carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.The Newsstand

Uncertainty shrouds Cuomo’s L-train plan: It’s unclear when construction will begin or how long it will last, and critics have raised safety concerns.
The L-train plan’s engineers wrote an op-ed defending it: “Some have referred to it as a ‘patch job’ — but nothing could be further from the truth,” they wrote.

My colleague Corey Kilgannon writes:
Just as the book seemed about to close on Westsider Rare & Used Books, one of the last independent bookstores on the Upper West Side, there came a plot twist.
Dorian Thornley, a co-owner, had decided to close the shop, on Broadway near 80th Street, citing a sales slump.
The news site West Side Rag ran an article with an all-to-familiar theme: Another mom-and-pop bookstore bites the dust. But it included a musing remark by Mr. Thornley that if “somebody did a crowd-funder and raised ,000,” he’d keep it open.
“Don’t see that happening though,” he added.
He may be proven wrong.
A customer, Bobby Panza, started a GoFundMe campaign, and faster than you can say “You’ve Got Mail,” by this morning bookstore lovers had pitched in more than ,000.
The Westsider is “like Zabar’s or Barney Greengrass,” Mr. Panza said. “It’s part of the soul of the Upper West Side, and I support small businesses, the small guys who are getting boxed out.”
Mr. Thornley said that if the fund-raiser got to ,000, he could stay open at least another year by paying off rent for several months and stocking more books.
“Then we’ll be in good shape,” he said, adding that selling books these days and paying Manhattan rents is never a rosy business plan.
“It’s not a Disney movie,” he said.
It’s Friday — save your local bookstore.
Also: We’re off Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Here’s his last speech, annotated. See you on Tuesday.Metropolitan Diary: Fitting in
I was walking north on First Avenue when I decided to cross the street to look at the menu posted in a restaurant window.
I was about halfway across the street when a woman came up next to me.
“Excuse me,” she said, “do you know where I can pick up the Q train?”
“I’m really sorry, but I have no idea,” I said. “I don’t live in the city.”
She took a few steps, and then she turned around.
“But you look like you belong here,” she said.
