More Snow on the Way
Westchester County is bracing for another round of snow. A Winter Storm Watch has been posted by the National weather service from Friday morning through late Friday night.
Forecasters say light snow is expected to develop early Friday morning, picking up in intensity into late Friday morning through the evening.
Total accumulation of 2-4 inches is possible.
Friday night, snow is expected, mainly before 3 a.m. and a lo around 21. An additional 3-5 inches of snowfall is possible.
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner says his town is making preparations for the storm. He says he has no big budgetary concerns about this storm, since January marked the new budgetary year.He did say, however, that the big blizzard of December 26th cost the town $100,000, the same cost as in the Town of Cortlandt.
Greenburgh has what's known as the Snow Angels program, which provides volunteers who remove snow for the elderly, disabled or otherwise homebound residents. Feiner says the Snow Angels helped 15-20 residents in the last storm and that they are looking for additional volunteers to help out. Those who can help can call Supervisor Feiner at (914)993-1545 or (914)438-1343.
Due to the impending storm, the City of Peeksill is announcing a Winter Parking Weather Alert that goes into effect at 8 pm and will be in effect until it's officially rescinded. As a result, all parking on non-alternate side streets is prohibited. Those in violation face a $150 fine.
