WHITE PLAINS - Unexpectedly heavy snowshowers made for hazardous driving conditions across Westchester County Friday morning.

News 12 Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck says the snow bursts were especially heavy in southern Westchester, with accumulations in some spots near an inch. Van Eck says the snow moved away from the region and rising temperatures should help melt the ice. 

DPW officials say that the black ice that formed Friday morning on many roadways, prompted sanders and salters to mobilize.
