MNRR & LIRR to shut down: http://alert.mta.info/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Railroad and above ground NYC Subway service will begin an orderly shutdown of service at 4:00pm due to deteriorating weather conditions and concerns for customer and employee safety. Crews and snow fighting equipment have been dispatched and are working to keep platforms and rails clear of ice and snow. We advise customers if at all possible to remain at home during the duration of this storm.

Apparently the inbound local lower Harlem track still has issues: http://www.mta.info/status/MetroNorth/Harlem/24229080" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
For customers traveling southbound to Melrose and Tremont, trains will not stop at these stations. Please get off at Harlem-125th Street Station and take a local Harlem Line train north stopping at Melrose and Tremont stations. Customers wishing to travel southbound from Melrose or Tremont stations should use Fordham station or can take the Bx41 Bus from Fordham to Melrose. NYC Transit will cross-honor Metro-North tickets for the Bx41 during this service change. This service change will be in effect through Monday, January 25, due to third rail power issues as a result of the significant snow accumulations.

Something seems to have gone wrong tonight. Walked into GCT at 6:45, only 2 Harlem/Hudson trains had tracks posted. And the 7:05 to North White- when it left- had 6 cars.
