YONKERS - A fresh new layer of snow made for a slippery commute today.

News 12 Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck says the overnight storm left over an inch of snow in many parts of the Hudson Valley. Van Eck says the snow has moved on from the area, but arctic cold temperatures remain. He predicts that temperatures will be in the teens overnight and are running 10-15 degrees below normal.

Department of Transportation officials tell News 12 that the snow created slick driving conditions and numerous minor accidents. They say melting snow mixed with the cold air and created black ice patches on many roadways.

Many schools in the region delayed the start of the school day by two hours.
