Another Snow Storm Moving In


Less than a week after the last Snow Day, the Loop area could be pounded with up to 14 inches of the cold, white stuff starting Tuesday night.

“We’re fully stocked with salt and ready to go,” said Mamaroneck Village Manager Richard Slingerland.

“Village emergency senior staff are all on alert and tracking the storm, and we’ll continue the same procedures we have in place to plow the roads as normal and clear paths for emergency vehicles to respond to and from emergency calls,” he said.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch, calling for 6 to 14 inches of snow and gusty winds starting after midnight Tuesday and continuing through early Wednesday. Travel conditions could be hazardous.

With that forecast looming, the Town of Mamaroneck moved into action Monday by pre-treating roads, said Town Administrator Stephen Altieri.

“The equipment is all prepared for response and we will make final decisions tomorrow afternoon on any changes to Town services that may be necessary on Wednesday due to the storm,” he said.

There was no word Monday on possible school closings.

If the storm arrives as predicted, it will be the third time Larchmont and Mamaroneck have been hit with snow in just two weeks.  Though last Friday’s storm – which closed schools at noon — didn’t compare to the blizzard of the week before, it has had lingering effects.

“DPW has been continuing to remove snow piles from around the Village from the last snow storm,” Slingerland said.
