Orange County Issues Statement in Preparation of Winter Weather
The first significant snowfall of the season wasn't too horrendous for the Hudson Valley but still isn't any fun to shovel. Did the snowfall that we received measure up to the predictions?
Hudson Valley Weather said many schools across the region were delayed today due to the wet, sticky, packing snow that the Hudson Valley received. Sub-freezing temperatures overnight made certain areas even slicker.
The temperatures will barely get over freezing, but some potential sun later in the day could help improve road conditions. Snowfall totals range from a light coating to 6 inches.
