Parts of Brooklyn could top ten inches, forecasters say, with western Long Island getting more than a foot.
The heaviest snow will start around noon. Temperatures will range from 10 - 21 degrees, with wind chills making it feel like 10 below zero late Tuesday night.
According to NOAA, we should have two to four inches in Brooklyn by quitting time. Three to seven inches more will fall Tuesday night. So even if you get off at 5 p.m. you're not going to want to wear your good shoes home. So bring those boots or snow-proof shoes, with thick, warm socks. (And gloves, scarf, the whole bit.) It's going to be freezing out there!
Alternate side parking suspended; all other rules including parking meters in effect.
