NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Another round of wintry weather has swept its way into much of the Tri-State Area for the third Monday in a row, leaving scores of schools closed and commuters facing slick roads.
A winter weather advisory is in effect for New York City, Long Island, Rockland and Westchester counties and for parts of New Jersey and Connecticut until midnight Tuesday morning. Some areas to the north, including Ulster and Dutchess counties, were under a winter storm warning until 6 a.m. Tuesday.READ MORE: Parents, Students Disappointed By Sudden Closure Of Elementary School In Westchester County Due To Lack Of Safety Inspections
Freezing rain and drizzle mixed with sleet at times earlier Monday. CBS2’s Lonnie Quinn reported that while LaGuardia Airport got only 0.2 inches in the storm going back to late Sunday, totals were staggering in some other areas – 7 inches in New Fairfield, Connecticut, and 9 inches in Waterbury, Connecticut.
A little more snow – and possibly another burst of more intense snow – was expected to develop in the late afternoon and continue through the evening before temperatures were expected to drop again, Quinn reported.
