Spring arrives later this week, but one last winter storm has forced Boston schools closed on Tuesday.

“The latest forecasts show Boston could see 8 inches of snowfall with the expectation for freezing rain, ice, and sleet throughout the morning’s commute. Residents and commuters should expect very slow traffic as the City’s plowing operations continue throughout Tuesday morning. For commuters coming into Boston tomorrow, public transportation will be the best route,” wrote the Mayor’s office in a Monday night press release.

While schools are closed, Boston’s Youth and Families Centers will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.. A parent or guardian of kids 12 and under must sign a short form before dropping their child off.

“Residents with weather-related questions or concerns should call the Mayor’s 24-Hour Hotline at 617-635-4500, or contact us via Twitter using @NotifyBoston. Residents should also for latest updates and to submit requests and find information online,” read the statement.
