With a major winter storm that brought more than a foot of snow to New York City, the MTA put into play a major snow plan, the first of the year.

Beginning Monday at 12:01 a.m., LIRR trains will operate on a weekend schedule, which will remain in effect through Tuesday evening. Late-night service on Metro-North will end early Monday evening.

In order to prevent subway trains from being blocked in yards, they may be stored underground on express tracks with could impact express service on Monday. Above-ground service may be reduced or suspended if the snowfall is especially heavy.

Finally, MTA Bridges and Tunnels implemented an empty and tandem tractor-trailer ban that began at 6 a.m. Monday.

However, the MTA urged customers to stay home and avoid unnecessary travel during the storm.

"This is a serious winter storm with high snowfall levels predicted," MTA Chairman and CEO Patrick J. Foye said. "MTA employees will be working hard over the next 48 hours and beyond to prepare for and respond to the storm. Even still, we strongly recommend New Yorkers stay home, stay safe and avoid unnecessary travel on Monday and Tuesday until the storm subsides."
