POUGHKEEPSIE – The forecasted snowstorm that called for wet, heavy snow to arrive in the Hudson Valley on Monday night arrived right on schedule.  Snow began falling around 7:00 p.m., shortly after the City of Poughkeepsie DPW workers had pretreated the road surfaces to slow down the rate of accumulation.

As of 11:00 p.m., the main roadways in the city were still clear, but wet.

City workers arrived at the Civic Center Plaza transportation hub and the Financial Plaza parking deck to remove more than an inch of snow that had fallen on the sidewalks and pavement at the hub.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Dutchess and Columbia Counties that is in effect until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday.  The forecast calls for accumulations of 3″ to 7″.  Sullivan, Ulster, and Greene Counties are under a Winter Storm Warning until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday with a forecast of 5″ to 10″ of snow.  Orange, Putnam, and Rockland Counties are under a Winter Storm Warning until 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday and are expected to receive 6″ to 8″ of snow.
