The city will get at least a couple inches of flakes Saturday following another snowfall that hit the area Tuesday.

Updated Saturday, December 14 10:10 a.m.

After one snowfall earlier this week, the city will be hit with another round of flakes this weekend.

The New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a “snow alert” starting at 8 a.m. Saturday and will be deploying its snow fighting equipment as needed. Alternate side parking has been suspended Saturday to facilitate with snow removal, but payment at parking meters remains in effect.

The city’s Office of Emergency Management has also issued a “hazardous travel advisory” for Saturday.

The snow will start falling Saturday morning, with 4 to 6 inches of snow accumulation expected and a high of 31, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). Around 10 p.m., the flakes will begin turning to rain.

The rain should stop by mid-day Sunday and temperatures will be warmer, with a high of 43, according to the NWS. But it will be breezy, with winds at 16 to 21 mph.

For anyone traveling on public transportation this weekend, the MTA said has plans in place to keep its transit services up and running during bad winter weather conditions. The transit agency has cancelled scheduled weekend work with these exceptions. To see any MTA service changes, click here.
