Heads UP! ? just look outside!

Don’t need a Heads UP! this morning – just look out the window and don’t go out!
At Ardsley, 8 degrees, light to moderate snow, blowing and drifting snow.
NYS Thruway officially closed to commercial traffic ’til at least 8am and looks horrible, despite the best efforts of snow plows.

See NWS sites or your favorite weather provider for updates on when the snow will end; looking like mid-morning for the NYC area, followed by blowing and drifting snow and extreme cold until Saturday afternoon.
Mixed rain/snow/ice midday Sunday, followed by rain into Monday, followed by extreme cold again through the middle of next week.
