"I caution all New Yorkers within the path of the storm to stay off the roads unless travel is absolutely necessary," Cuomo said Tuesday morning. "Driving conditions during and after the storm will be challenging and we want to ensure that our personnel are able to clear the roads as easily and as quickly as possible."

Residents should expect snowfall at rates of an inch or more an hour through around midday Tuesday. Snowfall accumulations in the tristate area will range from 3 to 8 inches, making travel hazardous. 

A toll-free hotline -- 866-697-2434 -- is available for residents to check updates on weather, power outage restoration times, and shelters and warming centers in their area.

In addition, the State Emergency Operations Center remains activated for enhanced monitoring and will increase operations to include all transportation agencies for the storm.

Snow is expected to taper off early in the afternoon Tuesday, but remain possible at times through 9 p.m., making travel dangerous due to low visibility and slippery road conditions.
