NEW YORK (PIX11) — Mayor de Blasio announced that schools will probably open Monday as a snowstorm moves into the tri-state area.

In a press conference Sunday afternoon, de Blasio said parents should be prepared to send their kids to school.

De Blasio says New Yorkers should be “very, very cautious” during the Monday morning commute.

The mayor said they will make a final decision at 5 a.m.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Sunday evening through 6 pm., Monday.

NWS is currently forecasting between 2 and 7 inches of snow in New York City.

By Monday morning, the snow is expected to turn to sleet and freezing rain.

De Blasio closed schools last week when a blizzard shut down New York City and surrounding areas.

New York City was spared the worst of the storm where parts of Long Island and Connecticut saw nearly 30 inches of snow.
