CORTLANDT, N.Y. – Snow plows could be heard in the distance Friday as Nemo began dropping snow on Cortlandt.
The National Weather Service predicted between 12 and 15 inches of snow for the tri-state area as estimates were revised Friday at 4 a.m. The worst of the storm is expected to hit Friday evening into Saturday morning.
