BROOKLYN -

Residents are bracing for significant snowstorm Thursday as freezing temperatures continue to blanket the region and a snowstorm approaches.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for the city for most of Thursday. For many New Yorkers, that means wearing three or more layers of extra clothes.

News 12 meteorologists say that heavy blowing snow is possible with accumulations ranging from 3 to 5 inches around the city. Southeastern Brooklyn could see even more.

Snow is expected to fall throughout the day Thursday.
