Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters Monday that all train and bus service in New York City will shut down as of 11 p.m.
Asked if service is expected to resume in time for morning commutes on Tuesday, Cuomo said no.
"The feeling is the storm has gotten worse," he added.
The Port Authority also said the majority of flights expected in and out of LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports are either cancelled or delayed.
The governor repeated calls made throughout the day for all New Yorkers to stay indoors and off the streets as of 11 p.m. Drivers found to violate the curfew will be issued misdemeanor summonses, officials warned.
"The good news is the sun will come out again," Cuomo said. "We just don't know when."
Snow Storm Juno is plowing on through the East Coast, a few hours ahead of its scheduled noon arrival in some areas, ramping up fears that this storm could be as bad as many have been saying it will be.
