MIDTOWN — If you thought spring had arrived this past weekend, think again.

The city is expecting yet another one to two inches of snow to fall late Tuesday into Wednesday morning as the latest winter storm system sweeps into the area, a National Weather Service spokesman said.

The white stuff is forecast to begin falling around midnight and continue until about noon, the spokesman said.

Though the accumulation isn’t expected to be that significant, the snow will likely stick because temperatures throughout the day will be in the low 20s and only get up to about 31 degrees, the spokesman added. The cold is due to a return of the Polar Vortex.

Central Park has been hammered this winter with 28.8 inches of snow in February alone — the second highest total on record. The record for the month is 36.9 inches, tallied in 2010.
