WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning on Wednesday, with near blizzard conditions predicted for Westchester County Thursday night into Friday morning.

A coastal storm is expected to bring strong winds, dangerously cold wind chills and the potential for heavy snowfall.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 4 a.m. on Thursday until Friday at 1 p.m. for the entire Lower Hudson Valley as well as Southern Connecticut.

Snow accumulations of 6 to 10 inches are possible, with 1-2 inches predicted for Thursday morning, followed by a lull before the most significant snowfall is expected to fall starting Thursday evening and continuing into Friday.

The wind-chill factor will be from around 15 degrees below zero to 5 degrees above zero late Thursday night and into Friday morning, with drifting and blowing snow expected.

Driving conditions are expected to be hazardous, the National Weather Service said, and motorists are urged only to travel in an emergency, and to bring an extra flashlight, food and water in their vehicle.

Where's the green vehicle Hastings. God I need a long winded flowery message from the Hastings Mayor about now. You know how all is going to be alright and how great we all are. Come on Swiderski, start waxing.

Pelham...where are the Salters??? Streets are slippery!!!

In my opinion YONKERS DPW has to fill all potholes, especially from Odell Ave Up to Tuckahoe Rd, there are more than 8 unleveled manholes that will damage the tires of small car owners. Hope the City will look into it. If they do so, that will save thousands of dollars for the small car owners from repair charges.I wonder why no one is noticing it? In some areas our roads are worse than underdeveloped countries.

Can somebody please wake up the State DOT and make them aware that this storm is coming. They need a head start on the 9A Hill in Ossining!

When it comes to snow storms, at least those of us that live in Yorktown will not have to put up with Eric DiBartolo's conceited comments about himself on News12 or in the newspapers anymore. A special thanks to all the men and women of the Yorktown Highway Department. We the citizens of Yorktown appreciate all the hard work you have done for us. Now, finally, you the highway workers do not have to deal with Mr. DiBartolo's narcissistic personality disorder! Good luck Mr. Paganelli in your new position as Yorktown Superintendent of Highways!

Never mind.

I hope that Scarsdale can do a better job plowing the streets. Driving from White Plains into Scarsdale--the streets in White Plains are clear but Scarsdale is barely touched. Same with Eastchester/Scarsdale border. What is going on with that?

Need more men and give them a raise. The towns and villages want more with less. Everyone is doing a fine job with the resources they have. It could be worse.
