NEW YORK (AP) - Con Edison is warning New Yorkers that the predicted mix of snow and freezing rain could lead to power outages.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning. It starts overnight and continues until 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The weather service says the New York City area could get another 4 to 8 inches of snow, plus about one-tenth of an inch of ice.

Con Edison notes that snow and ice can bring trees and limbs down onto power lines, causing outages.

It’s reminding residents to stay away from any downed lines.

Outages and downed lines can be reported at Con Ed’s website or at 1-800-75-CONED.
