New York City public schools will be closed on Monday as snow is expected, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
School trips, after-school programs, adult education, YABC programs and PSAL activities are also cancelled. Yellow bus service for charter and non-public school students will not operate Monday. Department of Education central and field offices will remain open.
The latest forecasts show 4 to 9 inches of snow are expected in the city, according to the latest forecasts from the state.
“A winter weather warning is in effect from this afternoon until tomorrow morning and we could see as much as 9 inches of snow across the city,” Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged New Yorkers to prepare for potentially dangerous travel conditions.
“Extreme weather is the new norm, and we have another anticipated snow event that is expected to impact most of the state tonight,” Cuomo said. “We have learned from experience that it is better to be over-prepared in these situations – if you’re not prepared before the storm, it is too late.”
MTA agencies are preparing for the heaviest snow in its service region between about 9 p.m. Sunday and 4 a.m. on Monday.
