Storm is now starting to pull out of the region, snowfall reports are difficult to gather, due to the blowing and drifting of the snow,and seem to vary greatly across the region. Looks like about 5-12 inches has fallen on average, which is right in line with the forecast of 6-12 inches. Bitterly cold temperatures will keep the roads snowy and icy in places through the entire day, so use caution on the roads when venturing out. Like we have been advertising for a few days now, this storm was never about the amount of snow the HV would see, but more so the combination of the snow,bitterly cold temps,dangerous wind-chills and low visibilities. Another shot at winter weather arrives by Sunday, with a brief warm up and a sudden return to unseasonably cold weather to start next week. Lots of closures and delays across the region, so continue to check with local municipalities before you travel this morning, and stay warm Hudson Valley
