NEW YORK, N.Y. (WIAT) — This is a time-lapse video of a snow squall blanketing Manhattan in New York City Wednesday.

Frigid weather and a wintry mix made for a hectic weather day across the Northeast.

It caused dangerous road conditions which lead to several crashes.

What is a snow squall? The National Weather Service described it as an “intense, short-lived burst of heavy snowfall that leads to a quick reduction in visibilities and is often accompanied by gusty winds.”

The impact of these sudden dustings can lead to slick conditions on the roadway and reduction in visibilities.
