New York City is expected to get another four to eight inches of snow overnight on Tuesday. The National Weather Service predicts that Winter Storm Nika will drop more snow on the city Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, beginning at about midnight. A winter storm warning is in effect through Wednesday evening for the city.

The weather service said that there will be mostly snow, mixed with some sleet, which will create about a quarter inch of ice.

The city’s Office of Emergency Management Snow and ice on roads will create hazardous travel conditions.Severe winter weather conditions will make it dangerous to travel, particularly by car.

Alternate side parking will be suspended on Wednesday, Feb. 5, for winter weather operations, and payment at parking meters will remain in effect throughout the city.

There will also be some delays in garbage and recycling collection on Wednesday due to the weather. The city’s sanitation department has asked residents to clear snow from material already out and put material on the sidewalk, and not in the street.  No violation notices for improperly packaged garbage and recyclables will be issued during service delays.
