Nor'easter Watch: Share Your Photos

Here's a look at the upcoming forecast for Bedford and Katonah Lewisboro.

While some are still recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, another major storm has arrived in Bedford, Katonah and Lewisboro

According to the National Weather Service, there is a winter weather advisory in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday. Between now and then, we'll see wind gusts as high as 34 miles perhour and a total snow accumulation of up to four inches.

And it's cold outside—look for temperatures in the low 30s until Friday, when it's supposed to warm up to the low 50s, according to the NWS forecast.

The town of Bedford issued an update at 3 p.m. Wednesday continuing the state of emergency, requesting that residents limit road travel to emergencies only now that the storm—nicknamed Athena by the Weather Channel, but unnamed by the NWS—has begun.

The town's update had several reminders:

Dry ice and bottled water are available in front of the Town House and day warming shelters and charging stations continue to be available at the libraries and fire houses in Bedford, Bedford Hills and Katonah, officials said. In addition, Readers Digest (Chappaqua Crossings) is open as an overnight Emergency Shelter with hot meals. Contact Vince Russell, Director, 845-825-7395.

NYSEG and ConEdison continue Sandy recovery efforts. NYSEG has 58+ crews dedicated to the Town of Bedford for restoration and expects full restoration by 11pm, Wednesday, 11/7.

If you have a generator and are using it quite a bit, you will need to change the oil. Generators have an oil change schedule usually of every 100 hours of use to prevent engine damage or failure.

Thanks Marie - that looked like a hairy drive home, and I agree—it was a stunning morning and surprisingly clear on the roads.
