NEW YORK — Alternate-side parking was suspended through Sunday, but parking meter rules remained in effect as snow began to blanket the Big Apple Friday morning, the Department of Transportation said.

A blizzard, nicknamed Winter Storm Nemo by the Weather Channel, is predicted to bring high winds and dump between 10 and 14 inches of snow on New York City.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for New York City effective 6 a.m. Friday to 1 p.m. Saturday, and the city issued its own severe weather advisory, urging New Yorkers to remain home and avoid mass transit, if possible.

The city's Department of Sanitation also issued a "snow alert" as it girded its trucks with plows and salt spreaders.
