Update 7:20 a.m. Bee-Line buses and Paratransit began service at 7 a.m. with some service changes. Route 8 is on a snow detour and there is no service to Nodine Hill in Yonkers. Routes 1, 15, and 40 are not serving Westchester Community College. The Westchester County Airport is open, but officials say passengers should contact their carrier for specific flight information.

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - Winter storm "Nemo" hit Westchester County hard Friday and Saturday morning, leaving 10 inches of snow to be cleaned up.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said snow showers will continue before 9 a.m. on Saturday. Snow showers are expected to continue at a lighter rate up until noon when it's supposed to be cloudy.

The sun should come out in the afternoon with a high of 33 degrees but strong winds between 23 and 25 miles per hour are expected to continue. The NWS said an additional inch of snow is possible. Saturday night's low is predicted to be 12 degrees.

Metro North Railroad service has been suspended until further notice because of the storm's severity, as crews work to clear snow. All connecting services have also been suspended, according to the MTA.

Westchester County has delayed the start of its Bee-Line bus service “due to extremely poor road conditions.”

The New York State Thruway Authority has restricted speed on the Tappan Zee Bridge to 35 mph.

Commercial traffic remains banned on I-84 and all traffic remains banned on Connecticut roadways and highways.

New York State Police estimated Friday there were more than 100 minor accidents in the lower Hudson Valley, as well as numerous disabled vehicles. An accident early Saturday in Yorktown was cleared on the Taconic State Parkway at Route 6 and Inspiration Road.

“Although, the roadways remain open, motorists are urged to drive with caution and to avoid unnecessary travel and anticipate that interstates and parkways may be subject to immediate and unplanned closure to facilitate snow removal operations,” state police said in a statement.
