A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 7 a.m. Wednesday until 1 a.m. Thursday for Northern Westchester with anywhere from 3 to 8 inches of accumulation possible in Westchester, with higher amounts to the north and west.

While accumulations totals are uncertain, the storm will impact travel conditions, reducing visibility to a quarter- to a half-mile at times, according to the National Weather Service.
