BROOKYLN - Forecasters say a Wednesday snowstorm may dump about 6 to 12 inches of snow across the New York Metropolitan region.

A winter storm warning is in effect from midnight Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg closed the city's public schools a day early, but says city agencies will be open and employees should go to work. Bloomberg also urged commuters to rely on mass transit, rather than driving on the roadways, which will likely be slick and icy.

Brooklyn residents spent Tuesday purchasing shovels, salt and groceries to prepare for the storm.
