MIDTOWN — The city is bracing for its third snowstorm in less than a week that forecasters predict will hit late Saturday.

Snow is expected Saturday night into Sunday. The storm isn’t expected to leave more than a couple inches — a far cry from the 30 inches some meteorologists had warned was coming, a National Weather Service spokesman said.

“There’s no truth to that,” the spokesman said of the possibility of getting 2 1/2 feet.

“There’s potential for some snow this weekend but, at this point, the safe bet is a light snowfall starting late Saturday night into Sunday.”

Temperatures will be in the low 30s Saturday before dipping to the upper teens at night. They will rise to the mid-20s Sunday, the spokesman said.

New Yorkers continued Thursday morning to navigate around massive puddles of slush at street corners following Wednesday’s snow, which dumped 4 inches in Central Park and poured more than a quarter-inch of ice on the city.

Subways appeared to be running close to schedule during the morning rush.
