NEW YORK CITY — Drivers won't have to worry about moving their cars for alternate side parking until Friday, thanks to a snowstorm and three public holidays.
The city is set to get hit with 3 to 5 inches of snow by Tuesday morning according to the National Weather Service.

The city's Office of Emergency Management also issued a travel advisory starting midnight Monday through noon Tuesday. Officials warned blistering winds and snow accumulation could make for a tricky and potentially dangerous morning commute.
"New Yorkers are asked to exercise caution when driving and allow for additional travel time," a spokeswoman said. "Snow covered roads and reduced visibilities may create dangerous travel conditions."
Those planning to go outside are advised to cover their fingertips, earlobes, and noses, officials said, and to stick to major roadways if they have to drive. For a full list of tips for coping with severe weather conditions click here.
