    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Due to the storm and hazardous driving conditions, Boston Public Schools are closed Tuesday.

    The forecast predicts Boston will be impacted by a strong winter storm lasting throughout the Tuesday morning commute. Boston is expected to pick up anywhere from 4 to 7 inches; however, Mayor Tom Menino has not declared a snow emergency in the city, nor has he implemented a parking ban.

    At some point, the snow is expected to turn to freezing rain, ice, and sleet.

    Residents and commuters should expect very slow traffic as the plowing operations will continue for a better portion of the morning.

    All Boston Centers for Youth and Families sites will be open Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. All children over 6-years-old are welcome, but youth under 12-years-old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at drop-off to complete a short written form.

    Residents with weather-related questions or concerns should call the Mayor's 24-Hour Hotline at 617-635-4500, or via Twitter using @NotifyBoston. Residents should also visit www.cityofboston.gov/snow for latest updates and to submit requests and find information online.
