WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – Mostly sunny skies Friday are providing welcome relief from the relentless round of storms that have hit Westchester County, but another one could be in store for the weekend.
Skies began clearing Friday morning, showing off the mess left behind after more than a foot of snow fell across Westchester County in Thursday's Nor'easter.
Additional accumulations of between 2 and 6 inches fell overnight as the storm brought more snow, sleet, freezing rain and even a few claps of thunder and bolts of lightning to the area.
Even the most dedicated shoveler on Thursday will have more work to do on Friday.
Most towns in Westchester received a foot or more of snow accumulation, with the highest amounts in the northwestern part of the county. Peekskill reported 16 inches of accumulation on Friday morning.
Westchester residents should do their best to clear the heavy, icy snow because more is on the way despite the sunny skies and temperatures in the 30s on Friday. Breezy conditions could make it feel even colder when you are outside, with a west wind 20 to 25 mph and gusts as high as 38 mph.
Clouds will increase overnight into Saturday, with snow likely, mainly between 9 a.m. and the early afternoon. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches is possible.
Temperatures will dip into the low teens by Saturday night, with wind chill values as low as zero. There is a slight chance of snow Sunday afternoon with high temperatures in the 20s. Night-time temperatures will dip into the single digits.
Presidents Day will bring temperatures in the 20s and a 50 percent chance of snow Monday night into Tuesday morning. There is a chance of mixed precipitation during the day Tuesday under mostly cloudy skies, with a high near 40.
All the snow should begin to melt by Wednesday and Thursday, with partly sunny skies and highs near 40 to 45 degrees.
The National Weather Service also warns motorists of the possibility of black ice as snow melts and refreezes on roads.
