Snow Slows Planes, Trains and Automobiles

HARRISON, N.Y. - Saturday's early season snowfall has led to several delays and cancellations at the Westchester County Airport , delays on Metro-North trains and slow going on the county's roads.

Though the airport has remained opened, it advised that passengers contact their airlines to determine the status of their flights. As of 4 p.m. on Saturday, only one departing flight out of the airport was scheduled as "on time," and five remaining arrivals were listed as such. Other flights saw cancellations with a few delayed, according to the airport's website.

The snow has also caused suspensions and delays on the MTA's Metro North Railroad lines, according to a notice on the MTA's Metro North Railroad website.

Harlem Line services are suspended from North White Plains to Wassaic because of slippery rails, downed trees and power outages. Trains on the New Haven line have been delayed up to 30 minutes because of signal issues.

Road closings, including parts of the Hutchinson River Parkway, have been reported across the county because of downed trees and power lines. Departments along the Long Island Sound Shore are reporting numerous instances of trees and tree limbs down.

Con Edison reports nearly 35,000 power outages in Westchester and says as the heavy, wet snow sits on and takes down tree limbs, additional outages may occur.

Con Edison reminds customers to remain safe as the storm continues, and avoid any downed power lines.

Customers can report downed power lines, outages and check service restoration status online by computer, cell phone or PDAs at www.conEd.com . They may also call 1-800-75CONED. When reporting an outage, have your Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether your neighbors have also lost power.

A winter weather advisory for the area is in place until 6 a.m. Sunday and will include not just the white stuff but high winds and perhaps power loss. The temperature will hover near 35 degrees Saturday with winds traveling at up to 32 mph.

Nighttime winds could approach up to 45 mph but are expected to die down to 15 or 18 mph by Sunday and temperatures may rise up to 46 degrees.
