Snow Causes Early School Closures

The Yorktown Central School District will be on an early dismissal schedule on Tuesday.

A "light snow" is expected to blanket the Lower Hudson Valley Tuesday afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.

The agency issued a special weather statement calling for a mix of snow and rain for Putnam, Rockland, Westchester and many of the surrounding counties. In the afternoon and evening, the precipitation is likely to change back to snow alone. 

"The snow should accumulate on area roadways, causing slippery conditions," the statement reads. 

Yorktown and Somers are looking at 2 to 4 inches during the day, and up to half an inch in the evening, before 8 p.m., according to NWS.

Local conditions Wednesday will likely include sunny skies and a high of about 40 degrees.
