Wind, snow intensifies in Hunts Point as commuters scramble

The whipping wind and blinding snow is intensifying in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx Tuesday despite a blizzard warning cancellation. 



The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the Bronx Tuesday until 8 p.m., originally scaling back an earlier warning for a blizzard.



Wind gusts began to pick up and blow around the already three inches of snow on the ground as commuters scrambled below ground to subway stations.



Snow accumulations will range from 4-8 inches by 12 p.m. and will be heavy at times, according to News 12 meteorologists.



Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a state of emergency for New York, and all above-ground New York City subway service is suspended as of 4 a.m. today.



The storm is expected to be over around 8 p.m. Tuesday.
