By The Associated Press

Nature’s bag of New York tricks includes snow, ice and freezing rain.

School closings and road safety warnings abounded around the state on Tuesday.

The predicted snow totals range from just a couple of inches in New York City to more than a foot upstate.

Many schools were closed in the New York City suburbs but the city’s public schools remained open.

The city had more than a thousand plows at the ready.
