DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- The State of Emergency for Dutchess County, which includes an order prohibiting travel on all county roadways except for emergency personnel, remains in effect as the region continues to experience heavy snowfall at rates of up to two to four inches per hour.

In addition, the county has added an order prohibiting parking on all public roads in the county in order to ensure effective snow removal efforts.

Residents should also be aware that the Blizzard Warning remains in effect as the powerful nor’easter continues to bring heavy snowfall to the county along with gusty winds that are creating white-out conditions in some areas.

Total accumulation expectations have been increased by the National Weather Service for Dutchess County, which will range from 18 to 29 inches. Snowfall is expected to continue until early Tuesday evening and will continue to be heavy at times.

Snow is expected to diminish Tuesday evening between 7 and 9 p.m., although some light snow will linger into the day on Wednesday, especially across higher elevations.
