RYE/PORT CHESTER - Snow continued to fall throughout the day Friday in Rye and Port Chester, forcing cancellations.

Schools in Port Chester were closed all day, while the Rye and Blind Brook schools districts closed early.

The Rye Free Reading Room closed early and has canceled its Mardi Gras Parade Saturday. A rescheduled date is being figured out.

Saturday's coffee with state Sen. George Latimer and Assemblyman Steve Otis has also postponed until a date to be determined.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the county that will remain in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday. An estimated 10 to 14 inches of snow is predicted.

High winds and low visibility are expected to cause dangerous driving conditions. The storm could bring down tree limbs and power lines, according to the National Weather Service.

The strongest winds and heaviest snow are expected Friday night, when temperatures are expected to drop to the low 20s. As much as 3 to 7 inches of snow could accumulate during the day and another 6 to 10 inches at night. Winds of 15 to 25 mph are expected, with gusts as high as 45 mph.

Metro-North Railroad added trains for commuters Friday afternoon, but fewer will be in service Friday night.
