YONKERS - A winter storm that has brought up to a foot of snow and ice to the Hudson Valley is beginning to wind down.

Meteorologist Brysen Van Eck says the back edge of the storm is departing the region, and the intensity of the snow and sleet will diminish rapidly. He stresses that there will still be some precipitation throughout the afternoon, but it will be scattered and light.

Van Eck thinks that all of the precipitation should end by 7 p.m. tonight.

With temperatures just below freezing, Van Eck warms that roads will continue to be extremely dangerous well into tomorrow.
