New York prepares for more winter weather

First the cold. Now the snow. New York City and Long Island commuters should expect hazardous travel conditions during the morning rush hour with periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory that remains in effect for the city and Long Island until noon Tuesday.

Meteorologists expect snow accumulations of two to four inches with wind gusts up to 20 mph. The snow should end by Tuesday afternoon.

The Sanitation Department has readied 500 salt spreaders and 1,600 plows.

New York City subways are operating on a cold weather plan. Commuters are advised to allow additional travel time.

Alternate-side-of-the-street parking in New York City has been suspended for Tuesday. Parking meters will remain in effect.
