NEW YORK — Enough, already.

More snow could fall on a storm-weary NYC again this weekend, as the mounds of slush piled on the sidewalk after Tuesday's blizzard-that-wasn't have yet to melt.

Saturday could bring up to 6 inches of snow — but more likely closer to 3 inches, max — with a high of 38, but temperatures could feel like 20 degrees with wind chill, according to the National Weather Service.

"A developing low off the Mid Atlantic coast will likely bring an accumulating snowfall from late day Saturday into Sunday morning. There is a chance that snowfall along the coast could reach or exceed 6 inches, in particular across Long Island which will be situated closer to the offshore low," the National Weather Service wrote in its alert.

The snow is expected to continue Saturday night and into Sunday morning, but is expected to give way to a sunny day on Sunday with a high near 40 degrees.

The city's Department of Sanitation issued a snow alert starting at 3 a.m. Saturday.

In preparation, DSNY will send out 689 salt spreaders and 1600 plows across the city, according to the Office of Emergency Management.

Pedestrians are warned to walk carefully and dress for the weather, and motorists are urged to drive with caution.
