Update 7:20 a.m. Bee-Line buses and Paratransit began service at 7 a.m. with some service changes.

Route 8 is on a snow detour and there is no service to Nodine Hill in Yonkers. Routes 1, 15, and 40 are not serving Westchester Community College.

The Westchester County Airport is open, but officials say passengers should contact their carrier for specific flight information.

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – The nor'easter that dumped several inches of snow onto Westchester County early Saturday is expected to taper off throughout the morning as towns work to clear roads and get back to normal.

The National Weather Service is predicting heavy winds and a chance of snow Saturday morning, with a total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch before the storm ends.

Meteorologists say gusty winds will result in blowing and drifting of snow, making travel dangerous.

Metro North Railroad service has been suspended until further notice because of the storm's severity, as crews work to clear snow. All connecting services have also been suspended, according to the MTA.

Westchester County has delayed the start of its Bee-Line bus service “due to extremely poor road conditions.”

The New York State Thruway Authority has restricted speed on the Tappan Zee Bridge to 35 mph.

Commercial traffic remains banned on I-84 and all traffic remains banned on Connecticut roadways and highways.

New York State Police estimated Friday there were more than 100 minor accidents in the lower Hudson Valley, as well as numerous disabled vehicles. An accident early Saturday in Yorktown was cleared on the Taconic State Parkway at Route 6 and Inspiration Road.

“Although, the roadways remain open, motorists are urged to drive with caution and to avoid unnecessary travel and anticipate that interstates and parkways may be subject to immediate and unplanned closure to facilitate snow removal operations,” state police said in a statement.
