NWS: Snow, Sleet on the Way

Katonah could see a couple of inches accumulation by Thursday morning.

A wintry mix of rain, sleet and snow—along with temperatures as low as 30 degrees—is slated to arrive in the region Wednesday afternoon and last at least through the night.

That's according to the National Weather Service. The agency has issued a winter weather advisory and a hazardous weather outlook for Northern Westchester.

The first, which is in effect from 1 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, warns of snow, totaling between one and four inches, falling across the area. There's also a good chance that ice will be in the mix, creating "dangerous" travel conditions.

"Strong winds could down snow and ice-covered tree limbs, power lines and holiday decorations, and cause minor property damage," the advisory states. "Power outages are possible."

The hazardous weather outlook is in effect for Putnam, too.

Specific forecasts for Katonah call for one inch of snow Wednesday, followed by another overnight. They also predict a range of precipitation to fall until 3 a.m. Thursday, followed by rain alone. 

Thursday looks like rain before noon, with a high of about 44 degrees.
