Forecasters are predicting heavy snow for the Yorktown and Somers area by late Saturday night. Accumulation of 6 to 10 inches snow is predicted, with up to a quarter-inch of ice to top it off from sleet and freezing rain expected overnight.

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe weather conditions are expected, and significant amounts of snow will make travel dangerous.
