WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The MTA is advising Westchester County commuters to leave work early and finish their commute as early as possible, especially Metro-North riders.
According to the MTA, the storm arrived earlier than predicted, bringing higher snow accumulation and stronger wind gusts, raising the prospect of snow drifts of up to 2 feet.
As the storm progresses, train service may be curtailed or suspended depending upon weather conditions so that no trains become stranded.
Customers are urged to please take care when traveling during inclement weather and allow for additional travel time. Use caution when entering and exiting trains, and while on platforms and staircases.
Commuters are asked to monitor train stauts via Metro North's alert web page for the most up to date information.
