Another snowstorm could dump between 3 and 6 inches on the Big Apple later this week, forecasters said Tuesday.

Flakes are expected to start falling Thursday morning, according to AccuWeather senior meteorologist Paul Walker. 

“It’s going to come in pretty heavy initially,” Walker said. “Once the the snow gets underway, it’s going to mix with sleet.”

Current forecasts call for 3 to 6 inches in the boroughs and 6 to 12 in areas north and west of the city.

But the city could be in for more snow if the storm moves farther south.

“So we’ll just have to see where this lines up,” Walker said. “That’s a possibility, that’s what one of the concerns of this storm is — not knowing the exact track and strength of it, right now.”

At the start of the storm Thursday, temperatures will be in the mid-20s, according to the forecaster. Later in the day, temps will bump up to around 30. 

The Thursday evening commute is expected to be “a rough one” with the messy mix of snow and sleet, Walker said. 

By Thursday night and Friday morning, the mercury is expected to rise above freezing — and the snow will likely change to rain. 

The city could see “a couple flurries” Friday afternoon, but “nothing significant,” according to the forecaster. 

The weekend will be dry, for the most part, though “something light” is possible Sunday night ahead of another storm Monday, according to Walker. 

It’s too soon to make any predictions on that storm, he said.
