Another snow storm is on its way.

The area's next snow storm is expected to hit late Monday night. The tri-state area will start getting snow after midnight tonight through tomorrow afternoon before changing to sleet and freezing rain, according to the National Weather Service.

"On Wednesday we could get into the freezing rain, the sleet, the snow mixing all together throughout the day," Lauren Nash of the National Weather Service said. "Luckily for Suffolk County, New York City, we're only expecting two to five inches of snow with maybe a quarter inch of ice."

Forecasters warn the snow and ice could make for dangerous travel both tomorrow and Wednesday. Ice accumulation of up to a quarter inch is possible and could also knock down tree limbs and power lines.

A winter storm watch is in effect Tuesday through Wednesday evening. Accumulations of two to five inches are possible in the city. Up to a half inch of ice is possible too.
