New York City set for another round of snow on Super Bowl Sunday

The Big Apple will be hit with a fresh round of powder Super Bowl Sunday from yet another storm, forecasters said.

The storm is expected to blanket the tri-state area with between three to six inches of snow, senior Accuweather meteorologist Tom Kines said Sunday.

“The snow will be coming down hard at times,” Kines told The Post.

Kines said that it’s going to be “more of a wet snow” as temperatures hover around near-freezing with highs in the mid-30s.

Sunday’s snow is expected to become heavier in the late morning, bringing as much as one inch per hour before it ends around 5 p.m., the National Weather Service said.

“Some people are going to have to be shoveling,” Kines said.

Travel is expected to be impacted ahead of kickoff for the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday evening in Super Bowl LV — potentially derailing watch parties.

“If you’re out and about this afternoon, take it easy. At least some of the roads will be slick,” Kines said.

But he said it won’t be as powerful as last week’s monster storm that closed schools and caused disruptions to bus and subway service.

“If we made it through the last one, this is going to be a walk in the park,” Kines said.

“We don’t have the wind to contend with and temperatures are above freezing for the start of this storm,” he added.

But the latest dusting will help put New York on track for one of its snowiest seasons.

“We’re at twice the normal so far,” Kines said, noting that there have been 28 inches of snow this winter instead of the usual 14 inches of accumulation.

And he warned that there could be more to come on Tuesday, Thursday, and into the weekend.”We have to see how the systems pan out, but there’s certainly the possibility of snow,” Kines said.

“They don’t look like powerful storms but they can still cause problems or be a nuisance like today.”
