WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – Get ready for Round 2, Westchester.
A winter storm will be making its way to the region for the second time in three days overnight Tuesday into Wednesday.
A Winter Storm Warning has been issued by the National Weather Service from midnight until 7 p.m. Wednesday.
This comes after Westchester was hit by a storm that dropped nearly 9 inches of snow in parts of the county. Snowfall totals varied from 6 inches in Mount Kisco to 8.5 inches in Ardsley.
Snow was expected to return to the area after 1 a.m. Wednesday with possible accumulations between 2-4 inches by morning, followed by a mixed bag of precipitation, including snow, sleet and freezing rain the rest of the day, with areas to the north seeing more snow. Northern Westchester could see as much as between 6 and 10 inches.
Wednesday’s high will hover around the freezing mark.
But the line between a mixture of snow/rain/sleet and snow continues to be fluid.
Areas closer to the coast likely see dangerous icing conditions by the Wednesday morning commute with sleet and freezing rain forecast for the whole day.
Snow, freezing rain, and sleet will fall before noon, then freezing rain and sleet is likely between noon and 3 p.m., with more snow likely after 3 p.m. New accumulation of about one-tenth inch of ice is possible, with 4 to 8 inches of new snow and sleet possible. The snow is likely to continue into the evening before tapering off at about 9 p.m.
With reduced visibility and icy road conditions expected, the National Weather Service advises residents to travel only if necessary.
Thursday is expected to be partly sunny with a high between 28 and 30 degrees.
And don't put away your shovels: Another big storm may hit the area over the weekend. Storm models were still varying significantly as of Tuesday, however.
