NEW YORK — Stay home! That's what some officials are asking commuters to do as a massive snowstorm threatens the New York City area with up to three feet of snow.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for New York starting Monday night and into Tuesday.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged New Yorkers to stay home, warning that roadways and mass transit could be shut down before the evening rush hour.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says residents should prepare for the worst. He says the city plans to deploy nearly 500 salt spreaders ahead of the snowfall, followed by 1,500 snow plows.

Schools will be open, though after- school activities were scrapped. Alternate side parking has been suspended for Monday, as has garbage collection.
