The snow was already coating the sidewalks on Bell Boulevard in Bayside Tuesday morning.

Winter is still more than a week away, but the snowflakes are already falling.

The New York City Department of Sanitation issued a “snow alert” starting at 6 a.m. Tuesday. Alternate side parking has been suspended today to facilitate with snow removal, but payment at parking meters remains in effect.

The snowy weather will continue throughout the day, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).  A winter weather advisory is in effect until 5 p.m., with 3 to 5 inches of snow predicted in the city. Drivers should expect icy and dangerous travel conditions.

For anyone traveling on public transportation, the MTA said has plans in place to keep its transit services up and running during bad winter weather conditions.  To see any MTA service changes, click here.
