DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Winter Weather Advisory that includes Dutchess has been issued in advance of an approaching storm system overnight Monday into Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
A mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain is expected during the day. Residents are advised to use caution if traveling.
The advisory is in effect from 4 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday.
During Monday night and into Tuesday morning, a period of ice will glaze some roads and sidewalks prior to a change to plain rain later on Tuesday, said AccuWeather.com, adding that motorists should be prepared for slippery travel and allow extra time for their commute on Tuesday.
A larger storm system is now expected to impact the area late Wednesday int Thursday that could result in plowable snow and accumulation of 6 inches or more, the National Weather Service said.
Uncertainty with the storm is high as the dynamic that will cause the storm to develop along the East Coast is still over the Pacific Ocean.
If the storm does develop, it should be a quick-moving system and out to sea by Thursday afternoon.
