DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- The latest snowfall projections for the storm system that will move through Dutchess County late Thursday into Friday morning have increased according to the National Weather Service.
The snow is expected to begin late Thursday evening for far northwestern areas, and closer to midnight farther east in the Hudson Valley. The snow is expected to begin as rain for much of the area before changing quickly to snow from northwest to southeast during the overnight hours.
Anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of accumulation is expected for Dutchess. Westchester, Rockland and Putnam should see 3 to 6 inches of accumulation.
A Winter Weather Advisory, issued by the National Weather Service, is in effect from 10 p.m. Thursday until 4 p.m. Friday for Dutchess.
An advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Motorists should be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.
After the storm passes Friday afternoon, skies will stay clear Saturday through Monday with highs in the 30s each day before another storm system is expected to affect the area Monday into Tuesday.
It is too early to project the possible potential accumulations of that storm as its track remains uncertain.
