Dear Residents, Neighbors and Local Business Persons:

Residents and Businesses are advised to take any final precautions necessary before the major Nor’easter Blizzard hits. At this time, the National Weather Service has increased storm total predictions for the Westchester area and Mamaroneck to as much as two feet to three feet of snow, or even more.

Residents are urged, whenever possible, do not park in the street, so that snow plows and salting trucks can get through and perform plow operations.

It is highly likely that travel will be impossible on Tuesday, and perhaps even Wednesday.  Snowfall rates are predicted to increase to as much as 2″ to 4″ per hour.

Everyone is reminded that it is illegal and unsafe to shovel snow, snow-blow snow or plow snow into the street. It makes is unsafe for emergency and snow plow operations, unsafe for all drivers going along the streets, and unsafe for you as well.

Please note the latest post from the National Weather Service as of 6 p.m. this evening:

Please be safe, shovel walkways and driveways onto lawns and not into streets. ~

If there is a power outage, the first thing to do is contact Con Edison at their customer service number of 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). ~

Be safe, and plan on not traveling for all of Tuesday, January 27, and possibly Wednesday, January 28, 2015.

Sunday Morning:

Mamaroneck Village Manager Richard Slingerland is urging everyone to be aware of the storm predicted for Monday into Wednesday.

Dear Residents and Mamaroneck Business Persons:

Please note that the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the Mid-Atlantic Corridor, which includes the New York Metropolitan Area and the Village of Mamaroneck.  This is for a major Noreaster Blizzard.  Snowfall predictions are presently in the range of 10″ to 14″ of snow, which could increase to higher amounts, from Monday into Wednesday.  While over the past several days snowfall predictions were for a few inches of snow, and for a 50% probability, this new forecast has been issued with strong confidence and firm warnings.

The heaviest snow is predicted to take place Monday evening into Tuesday.

Everyone is urged to take the necessary precautions, plan in advance, and be prepared for cancellations and closures of school, government offices, businesses, mass transit, business offices, and other normal day-to-day activities.  Since snowfall rates are predicted to be as heavy as 1″ to 2″ per hour, people are urged to avoid travel after the storm begins, as snow plows and salt trucks will have difficulty keeping up with snowfall rates.

Residents and businesses are also reminded that it is illegal to shovel, snow-blow or plow snow onto Village streets and sidewalks.  You should therefore plan to shovel, snow-blow or plow snow onto lawns or nearby areas that can accommodate piles of snow.  Businesses in the Mamaroneck Downtown and other areas are reminded to shovel snow in a manner that creates a safe and clear path along the sidewalk, with access points between the street parking and sidewalks so residents can access stores and restaurants.  After the street plowing and parking lot and village sidewalk clearing has been completed, the Village will plan to perform off-hours snow removal in the Downtown.

Please note the Winter Storm Watch issued from the National Weather Service.
