Yet another snowstorm will beat down on New York City Sunday night, leaving between 3 to 6 inches of snowfall just in time Monday morning’s commute.

The storm should dissipate towards the morning, with conditions improving by the early afternoon.

The city’s Sanitation Department already announced that its team will is preparing by loading salt spreaders and attaching plows to trucks when necessary, ready to bring in personnel as needed.

But along with the snow comes frigid temperatures, said Joey Picca, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

“Temperatures will be cold as we head into tonight,” he said. “We won’t be warming up too much tomorrow.”

The weather service currently predicts temperatures to plummet overnight, going from the low 30s on Sunday night to the mid 10s Monday morning.

“It’s going to be continue to be quite cold for this time of the year,” Picca warned, still well below normal for this time of year.

High temperatures will hover around the low 20s through Tuesday afternoon, staying relatively dry with a light possibility of flurries on Tuesday, Picca added.

The rest of the week looks to be cloudy, mostly staying in the 20s through at least Thursday.

Despite catching heat a few weeks ago for not closing schools ahead of almost double tomorrow’s expected snowfall in early February, Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters at an unrelated event that schools are not scheduled to be closed for Monday — at least not for now.

Others on Twitter are already asking the mayor for a reprieve from classes.
