A fast moving snowstorm has dumped upwards of 14 inches of snow on some parts of Westchester County and forced the closure of hundreds of schools and area businesses.
Armonk and Somers received the most snow, 14" while Harrison and Mount Kisco clocked in at 11", Yorktown Heights 10.5 and White Plains 10" of the white stuff.
Forecasters say we can expect areas of blowing and drifting snow until noon, then a chance of snow and blowing snow between noon and 3 p.m.
Chance of additional precipitation 40%.
Here comes the snow again.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 7 this evening until 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Forecasters say we can expect snow to move in, mainly after 9 p.m. low tonight around 22. Total nighttime snow accumulation of between 4 and 8" possible
Snow's expected to continue into tomorrow through the afternoon hours, with an addition 3-5" expected. Forecasters say those numbers will likely be higher for eastern portions of Westchester County, particularly along the shoreline, as the storm is taking a northeasterly track.
Here we go again.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for northern and southern Westchester from Tuesday evening through Wednesday Afternoon. Heavy snow and strong, gusty winds of 25-30 mph are expected, bringing with them poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions. The NWS says accumulations of between 6-12 inches are expected. Forecasters say the bulk of the snow is expected to fall Tuesday evening after midnight, with some scattered flurries on Wednesday morning.
The Boxing Day Blizzard of 2010 has come and gone, but it left Westchester reeling and still digging out. The monster of a snowstorm not only dumped upwards of 19" of snow in some parts of Westchester County but residents have had to deal with strong gusty winds and blowing snow which made cleanup a nightmare.
Due to the blizzard conditions, the MTA has announced that Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road will be operating on reduced schedules on Monday. Metro-North will be running on a regular Sunday schedule, while the Long Island Railroad will operate on a holiday schedule.
The MTA says its personnel are working hard to provide service today and into tomorrow morning's rush hour for those who must travel during this major winter storm.
