Difficult commutes expected as wintry mix turns to snow

Posted: Updated:

Falling temperatures and several hours of snow are expected to make commuting a nightmare for most of the Hudson Valley today.

Most of Rockland and Westchester counties had temperatures in the mid-30s overnight so it has been mostly rain in the area. However, officials are warning drivers about black ice throughout the region.

News 12 meteorologists say that temperatures will drop throughout the morning and any rain in the area will start to transition into freezing rain, sleet, and snow.  They expect several straight hours of snowfall in most of the Hudson Valley this afternoon.

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

Officials at Westchester County airport say some flights have been delayed and canceled, and advise travelers to check with their carrier before leaving home.
