WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY. -- Westchester residents waking up Friday must have felt like they were reliving Thursday with all the snow on the ground.

Most towns in Westchester received a foot or more of snow accumulation, with the highest amounts in the northwestern part of the county. Peekskill reported 16 inches of accumulation by Friday morning, after more snow had fallen overnight.

Most schools in the area were closed for a second day, though Lakeland had a Superintendent's Conference Day and Briarcliff Manor was on a three-hour delay.

Snowfall in Ossining led to the cancellation of an event in which Ossining High School students were going to treat senior citizens to breakfast at the Ossining Community Center.

Cortlandt Town Court was canceled for Friday. The Town of Cortlandt also canceled recycling pickup on Friday.

Supervisor Linda Puglisi said more than a foot of snow has fallen in Cortlandt and delayed the opening of Town Hall until noon. Puglisi also declared a state of emergency for Cortlandt.

"We need all vehicles off the roads so that our snowplows can do their work," Puglisi said. "We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this difficult snow/rain/ice storm."

The Village of Ossining announced that snow emergency restrictions will remain in effect until Saturday, Feb. 15 at 6 p.m.

"The Ossining Police Department will continue to ticket and/or tow vehicles from Snow Emergency streets until the restriction is lifted," the police department said. "Please help us clear your street by parking in an appropriate area and taking a moment to move your vehicle when the snow plow passes."

The Village/Town of Mount Kisco announced that garbage collection had been suspended due to the snowstorm. Residents can bring trash to the Department of Public Works which will be open Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to noon. The DPW is at the end of Columbus Avenue. 

Westchester residents will face even more snow Saturday. Two to 4 inches are expected to fall Saturday morning.
