With more bad weather forecast to start during the overnight, most of the New York City stations are ready to help viewers get a jump on their morning.

It means early wake up calls for much of the dawn patrol talent.

WCBS/Channel 2 begins CBS 2 News This Morning at 4 a.m.

WNBC/Channel 4 also is gearing up for an additional 30 minutes with Today in New York at 4 a.m.

WABC/Channel 7 is set to extend Eyewitness News This Morning to 4 a.m.  

A spokeswoman for WNYW says, at the moment, Good Day Early Call is scheduled for its regular start time of 4:30 a.m., but cautions that it is subject to change.

WPIX/Channel 11 already airs its PIX Morning News at 4 a.m.
