DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- A complex storm will continue to bring a wintry mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and just plain rain, to Dutchess throughout the day Friday and into Saturday.
Parts of the county could experience some ice accumulation or flooding as a result of the rain and sleet that's expected to last into Saturday.

The weather Friday afternoon will be almost all rain, with a high in the mid-30s. Wind chill values will be between 25 and 30, and wind gusts could be as high as 25 mph.
Heavy rainfall may result in areas of urban and poor drainage flooding Friday night, with a few spots of moderate roadway flooding that may necessitate road closures. Sleet will return into the mix Friday night, before turning back to all rain overnight. The low will be near freezing.
Rain will continue into Saturday, with some sleet at times in the morning, with rain tapering off early in the afternoon.
