    Storm Team 4 is tracking another winter system with the potential to dump 6 inches of snow or more on the tri-state area early next week.

    New York City has seen significantly less snow this winter compared to last year. It has snowed 20.5 inches so far this season compared to 32.3 inches by this time in 2016, an amount that was buoyed by one of the largest snowstorms in the city's history last January.
