A significant westward shift in the major Nor’easter due to arrive in the area late Monday night has resulted in Blizzard Warnings now being issued for all of Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Dutchess counties and an increase in snowfall projections.
The Blizzard Warning means there is the potential for falling and/or blowing snow with strong winds and extremely poor visibilities.
The warnings are in effect from 12 a.m. Tuesday to 12 a.m. Wednesday.
A Costal Flood Advisory is in effect for Southern Westchester from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Parts of the Hudson Valley could get up to 21 inches of snowfall accumulation in the latest projections released by the National Weather Service. (See chart above)
The major Nor'easter, expected to arrive overnight Monday into Tuesday, will bring with it heavy snow and gusty winds that could lead to power outages. This can lead to whiteout conditions and make travel very dangerous.
Monday will also be brisk with a high struggling to reach the freezing mark under partly sunny skies.
