Some areas in Westchester blanketed under more than a foot of snow

Road crews across the county were in action on Saturday working to keep the roads as clear as possible for drivers, but they still had a tough time keeping up with the snow.

Driving conditions were treacherous all day Saturday as accidents were reported across the county. AAA officials say if you have to head out, accelerate and decelerate slowly, know your brakes, and don't stop if you don't have to. But they say the best advice is to just stay home.

A blizzard warning was in effect for areas south of I-287. A winter warining was in effect for the rest of Westchester. More than a foot to 15 inches can be expected in Westchester before the storm ends.
