GREENBURGH, N.Y. - While it is unusual to see snow in October, some Greenburgh and Elmsford residents are not too bothered by the impending weather change.
Residents can expect between four to eight inches of snow throughout the day Saturday. It is expected to start out wet and lighter in the morning, but convert to heavier, more consistent snow as the afternoon and evening approach.
Char Daigle, owner of the recently opened "Yoga Station" in Hartsdale, had planned a free-to-the-public afternoon of outside yoga across from the Hartsdale train station. Even with snow on the horizon, she said, their practice will not be ruined.
"If it does snow, we'll just bring everyone inside for yoga here," Daigle said with a smile. "Here's hoping for no snow, sleet or rain."
Jodi Manne, a teacher at Woodlands Middle School said that the cold weather came unexpectedly and quickly, and that it is unseasonable for October to be in the 30s.
But Marques Younger, an Elmsford resident studying meteorology upstate, said that this weekend's snow would not shock him as the oceans are colder than normal this year, and the winter weather is likely to start earlier than in past years.
"We get 144 inches of snow in Oswego," he said. "It's bound to start sometime."
However, residents should not get too wrapped up in the wintery weather just yet. The coming week will bring scattered sunshine throughout the day with the temperature in the 40s and 50s.
