MIDTOWN — Here we go again.

It's not even winter yet and the city could see another 4 inches of snow Tuesday as a fast-moving low-pressure system sweeps in from the northwest, according to the National Weather Service.

The flurries are expected to begin around 5 a.m. and should last until 3 p.m., dumping anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of the white stuff on the city.

Temperatures will be in the mid-20s when the flakes begin to fall and will reach just 33 during the day, according to the weather service.

The city department of sanitation has issued a 'snow alert' in preparation of the storm. They have readied 365 salt spreaders with plows attached and notified additional workers to be on standby in case they are needed.

The Dec. 17 record for accumulation is 6.7 inches, set in 1932.

The record high for the date is 62 degrees in 2000. The low of 1 degree was set in 1919.
