Portions of the Hudson Valley in Dutchess, Ulster, Putnam and Orange counties face the heaviest snow, with 6-12 inches or more possible by Tuesday morning. A swath of Westchester and Rockland counties can expect about 3-6 inches of snow, while areas further south toward Yonkers can expect a coating to about 3 inches.

The snow may be steady or heavy at times during the afternoon and evening, making for a difficult evening commute.

The steady snow will gradually taper off around or shortly after midnight. Flurries or snow showers may linger. Watch for dangerous travel conditions and snow-covered roads into Tuesday morning.

Tuesday will be windy and cold with feels like temperatures in the teens.
