The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Bedford-Katonah area from midnight to 4 p.m.

Snow and Sleet Mix Could Affect Wednesday's Commute

Be prepared for wet driving conditions Wednesday morning—a wintry mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet could affect local commuters.

The worst of it should be over by 4 a.m.—the National Weather Service has issued an advisory for Northern Westchester from midnight to just before the morning rush—but there's a chance for more precipitation up until 1 p.m. The total nighttime snow and sleet accumulation should be less than a half-inch.

An advisory is issued when a low pressure system results in a combination of winter weather that present a hazard, but does not meet warning criteria.

Temperatures rise slightly into the upper 30s and the rain may continue into the afternoon, according to the NWS. Things should warm up and dry out on Thursday, with a dry day in the low 40s forecast.
