A storm is coming, and it's almost time to binge-watch Gilmore Girls while hoovering up all those groceries you panic-bought. Or maybe you have some place to be, and are hoping the subway system will still be somewhat functional. In that case, be advised that the MTA will make things a little easier on us (and ensure there are enough people manning the snow throwers and jet blowers), by canceling all planned weekend work, leaving just a few long-term changes in effect.

Behold:

3 trains will skip Rockaway Av and Van Siclen Av in both directions. For service to and from Rockaway Av, there will be shuttle buses to and from the Saratoga Av station; for service to and from Van Siclen Av, there will be shuttle buses to and from the Pennsylvania Av station. Free transfers will be available on your MetroCard.

4 trains will skip Rockaway Ave and Van Siclen Av in both directions.

Brooklyn-bound A trains will skip 111 St and 80 St.

L trains will skip Atlantic Av in both directions. For service to and from this station, use free shuttle buses to and from the Broadway Junction station.

Brooklyn-bound N trains will skip 86 St, Avenue U, Kings Hwy, 20 Av, 18 Av, New Utrecht Av, and Fort Hamilton Pkwy. Trains will stop at Bay Pkwy and 8 Av.
