New York City saw a mix of snow and rain Wednesday morning, but there was little to no snow accumulation.

Forecasters initially had predicted up to 5 inches of snow in northern parts of Manhattan and the Bronx by Wednesday afternoon, but that changed when the storm moved a little to the south, bringing warmer temperatures with it, meteorologist Nelson Vaz explained.

Despite the change in forecast, alternate side parking rules were suspended for Wednesday. Parking meters were in effect.

Temperatures on Thursday are expected to be in the mid-30s, but it will start to get warmer by Friday, which could see a high of 42 degrees, the National Weather Service said. Saturday is expected to have a high of 47 degrees.
