The city's Department of Sanitation has a snow alert in effect and is getting plows and salters ready ahead of what is expected to be a small amount of snow.

The National Weather Service has downgraded a Winter Storm Watch for the area to a Winter Weather Advisory.

Approximately two inches is expected to hit most of the city, but some areas could see as much as four inches.

The storm is expected to hit the region Sunday evening and will last into Monday morning, which could result in a messy Monday morning commute.

With the actual snowfall amount lowered, NY1 asked residents what they thought of the latest forecast. Responses depended on what they were used to or fed up with.

"Much better. I like hearing that," said one person. "But Mother Nature's unpredictable, and I hope it stays like that."

"It's not my favorite winter, but it hasn't been so bad. It's been OK," said another. "New Yorkers are tough. We deal with anything."

"I'm an Aussie, so I'm loving life here in the snow," said a third. "It's just, we don't get snow back home, so it's great."

The city has suspended alternate side parking Monday to help with snow removal.
