The weather service is forecasting from 10 - 14 inches of snow and winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph in Brooklyn.
Pretty much everything has been cancelled -- planes, trains, and yoga classes.
After some initial snow, freezing rain will probably make everybody miserable from 4 - 8 p.m. Friday, and cause some flooding along the waterfront areas. Tides will be 2 - 4 feet above normal.
A COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY INDICATES THAT ONSHORE WINDS AND TIDES
WILL COMBINE TO GENERATE FLOODING OF LOW AREAS ALONG THE SHORE.
Don't be fooled: The strongest wind and snow will come Friday evening and night, and early Saturday. Don't drive! The weather service warns of near whiteout conditions. And DO NOT walk under snow-laden trees, as limbs will be falling.
IF YOU MUST TRAVEL...
HAVE A WINTER SURVIVAL KIT WITH YOU.
IF YOU GET STRANDED...STAY WITH YOUR VEHICLE.
Dress warmly for the LICH protest at Brooklyn Borough Hall this morning!
