New Yorkers are breaking out the boots and shovels again today as the city is expected to get hit with up to three inches of snow.

The snowfall is expected to continue until this evening, with the worst expected to be over by early afternoon.

While the city's Office of Emergency Management says the weather is nothing to panic about, it has issued a travel advisory.

"It will be very cold and the water will freeze on surfaces. Snow will stick because it's gonna be very light and sticky snow. So we ask people to be careful walking, we ask people that do any shoveling to be conscious about their own health and not overdo it," said OEM Commissioner Joseph Bruno.

The Department of Sanitation has also issued a snow alert, so salt trucks and plows will be out in full force.

As a result, alternate side parking is suspended throughout the city.
