MIDTOWN — Here we go again.

A winter storm warning is in effect Tuesday as Manhattan prepares for up to 10 inches of snow. Brooklyn and Queens could get even more with as much as 14 inches forecast, according to the National Weather Service.

The white stuff is expected to start falling between 11 a.m. and noon and continue throughout the day into early Wednesday morning.

This batch of snow, brought on by a low-pressure system making its way up from Virginia, is expected to be light in the first few hours and intensify throughout the afternoon, making for a difficult evening commute, according to the NWS.

Winds of up to 36 miles per hour are expected to accompany the snow. The NWS said the wind chill could reach -10 degrees at points.

The Jan. 21 snowfall record is six inches set in 2001.

The high for the date is 63 degrees, reached in 2006. The low is -2 degrees, set in 1985.
