WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – The good news is the latest storm set to hit Westchester on Tuesday is a quick-moving system, and, by the end of this week, temperatures should hit the 50-degree mark.

Now, the bad news. Projected snowfall totals have increased.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for 4 a.m. Tuesday until 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Snow should begin sometime before daybreak Tuesday and become heavy at times during the morning before tapering off Tuesday afternoon.

Most of Westchester County is now expected to receive between 3 and 5 inches of snowfall accumulation, with lesser amounts near the coast, according to the National Weather Service. Parts of Northern Westchester may receive 6 inches or more.

Temperatures should continue to climb Tuesday afternoon, to a high between 38 and 40 degrees, signaling the start of a welcomed warming trend.

The outlook for Wednesday calls for a chance of rain and snow showers before 10 a.m., then a chance of rain showers with a high between 45 and 47 degrees.

By Friday, the temperature could reach or surpass 50 degrees.

I can't find a parking space for my car because of snow. I pay for overnight parking, yet when I called the Pelham police last night and told them I needed to park in an undesignated spot he told me NO, park in Mount Vernon and walk!!! Nice guy, HUH!!!???

NOOOO so tired of driving to work in this snow!!! I'm moving to Georgia where everything shuts down when it flurries.

The only positive is that with extended daylight, the snow doesn't last as long -- that is, the melt happens sooner. However, with the new snow laying on top of the old snow (and we of course, have a considerable amount) the new stuff will melt ... and leave a pile of the old stuff.

So tired of it. Yes, it "is what it is." But what it "IS" is "ANNOYING".
