Crews in Croton-on-Hudson have been laying down ribbons of de-icing solution on village roads today—a sure sign that the forecast calls for snow.
The National Weather Service predicts rain turning to snow in Ossining and Croton by 4 a.m. Feb. 16. But not to worry—total accumulation could be up to half-an-inch. Then there's a chance of rain and/or snow during the day.
Anti-icers are applied prior to snowfall to prevent snow and ice from bonding to the pavement. They work by using a brine solution to lower the temperature at which water freezes.
