After avoiding accumulation in Wednesday’s nor’easter, New York City is bracing for several inches of snow to coat the area this weekend.

Two to four inches of snow is expected in the city, according to the National Weather Service, with the snowfall to begin after 9 a.m. before tapering off later in the day.

In preparation for the storm, the DSNY has issued a snow alert and plows and salt spreaders are ready for tomorrow morning if needed.

The storm is moving north and is expected to drop several inches of snow on Philadelphia before making its way to the city.

Over the Christmas holiday, a nor’easter struck the Midwest, killing more than a dozen residents and dumping almost two feet of snow some places. New York City avoided snow and only experienced high winds and rain.
