A Foot of Snow to Hit Brooklyn Today; NYC Schools Close for Snow Day

 Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina declared that all NYC public schools would be closed on Thursday due to the predicted severe snowstorm, Niko, the Brooklyn Eagle reports. 

It's going to be devilishly tricky to get around at times. According to The Weather Company, snow should become heavy around 8 a.m. in NYC/ Brooklyn. Sustained winds during the heavy snow will likely produce white-out conditions.

Due to the NYC Transit Cold Weather Plan Preparation, certain service changes are in effect, so check with MTA before heading out. 

The National Weather Service says temperatures will fall during the day as northerly winds pick up, drawing colder air southward as the low "bombs."

We take this to mean take the kids (and yourself) out sledding earlier, as it will feel colder as the day goes on.

Hot chocolate for the kids and hot toddies for the grownups in the afternoon!
