Hazardous Winter Weather on Tap in Westchester
Westchester is gearing up for another round of hazardous weather.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for late tonight thorugh late Tuesday night.
Snow is expected to move in on the overnight dropping anywhere from 1-3" of accumulation before it changes to sleet and freezing rain, adding an additional layer on top of the snow. Temperatures will start off below the freezing mark then gradually inch their way up, resulting in mixed precipitation.
Forecasters, at this point, say it's unclear when the precipitation will change from snow to sleet to all rain. Some are questioning whether a complete changeover will occur at all.
The National Weather Service says travel is expected to be hazardous on Tuesday morning and treacherous by Tuesday afternoon. It's also warning that the snow and ice combined could bring down tree branches and power lines and that power outages are possible.
As a result of the latest forecast, the City of Peekskill has announced that a Winter Parking Weather Alert will be in effect from 8 p.m. tonight until it is officially rescinded. As a result, all parking on NON-ALTERNATE side streets is PROHIBITED.
