The unusually mild and dry winter weather abruptly changed this morning as snow began falling before dawn and continues to fall throughout the morning. Up to six inches is expected in most of the Hudson Valley.
People drove carefully along treacherous roads as plow crews began the task of clearing the snow from roadways and parking lots. Residents cleared snow from their cars and shoveled the sidewalks, driveways and steps of their properties, while children dressed in snow clothes grabbed sleds and headed for the nearest slopes.
Many scheduled activities have been cancelled or postponed, and their are numerous flight delays at all area airports according to WCBS radio.
