PLEASANT VALLEY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York State Thruway Authority is restricting all tractor trailers on Interstate 87 between Newburgh and the New York City Line.

In addition, long tandem tractor trailers are banned until further notice between Interchange 32 in central New York and New York City. That includes the Cross Westchester Expressway, New England Thruway, and Berkshire spur to the Massachusetts state line.

Troopers who cover a four-county region in New York’s Hudson Valley are advising motorists to avoid all unnecessary travel during the storm, which is expected to bring up to 2 feet of snow to the region by Wednesday, with blizzard-like conditions possible in some areas.

Troopers say the storm could make travel virtually impossible on Tuesday and are advising people to stay home.
