MIDTOWN — Will it never end?

As much as four inches of snow is forecast for Tuesday morning, starting just before the morning rush, according to the National Weather Service.

Flakes should start falling after 3 a.m. and will intensify around commute time, an NWS spokesman said.

As temperatures increase from the low 30s to the mid 40s in the late morning, the snow should give way to rain. Higher temperatures for the rest of the week should start melting the piles of ice.

The Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert for Tuesday and is prepping its salt spreaders, plows and tire chains.

Central Park has already been battered with 27.3 inches of snow this month, the third highest total on record. The highest was in 2010 with 36.9 inches.
