4:07 am
we are taking a closer look at the roadways were you to have potential for problems. if you look under the slight, you can kind of see what we are working with this morning. that slushy, snowy mix. if you look at the roadway, you can see where there could get to potentially be issues here. you can already make out just how thick the roads are. in the hours ahead, the problems could only get worse. the county has been in the process of ripping these roadways and as we know, the storm now coming on a friday morning, unlike the last storm which actually happened during the weekend where people were out of work and out of school. the issue this morning is you will have many folks waking up to the worst of it. so if you are driving this morning, you want to leave early, go slowly and use caution. bottom line, drivers this season have gotten out of

4:09 am
and things like that. had we had temperatures that were very cold, our normal high is 40, yesterday it was 59, so we are looking at a pretty sunset coming up at 5:15 a.m. poughkeepsie is showing 39, and 40. it does snow at that temperature but it is a heavy, wet snow with northerly wind event is coming down here at six, or 12 or 14 miles per hour. so, we have some wind chills of 29 in the cordy, and 20 in monticello. it's cold and very damp, heavy, what snow. a winter weather advisory means
4:10 am
wet snow, and amax, and the warning means more than that. this is the long island expressway, and winter storm warning until 3:00 this afternoon, all the way to twin forks out there and out toward the hamptons. the rain to snow is right on time, and eastern and long island, still in the rain here in cell phone county. you will get to the snow and it will last longer. so you see the snow is falling all across route 80, and all the way down the line. so this is, as the holder keeps filtering in this morning, that will be changing over to snow everywhere. so far, we are calling this rainfall, it's the liquid equivalent so far.
4:11 am
