NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Here we snow again.

Say it ain't snow...

OK, enough with the puns, but we are getting another snowstorm, and it is being classified again as a nor'easter.

The New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert for Tuesday at 1 p.m. 

A winter storm watch in effect from Tuesday, 6 p.m, until Thursday, 12 a.m., according to the National Weather Service.

According to AccuWeather, some rain or wet snow will be moving into the Tri-State form the south Tuesday evening.

"Anyone from just north of Baltimore to Philadelphia, New York City and close to Boston may easily pick up 3-6 inches of snow with the storm with locally higher amounts," according to AccuWeather Senior Storm Warning Meteorologist Rich Putnam.

"In New York City, temperatures look to be slightly lower for this storm, compared to other storms in recent weeks," said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek. "That may translate to perhaps more snow on the roads in the five boroughs of New York provided it snows hard enough during the daylight hours."

Wednesday will be cloudy, increasingly windy and cold, with a mix of rain and snow that could end as all snow in places in the evening. Expect mainly wet and slushy roads with a couple of inches of accumulation likely, with the possibility for more south and east of the city.

All relevant city agencies have been notified of the snow alert. DSNY will continue to monitor forecasts and will provide updates as the snow event approaches.
