Snow fell across much of the Hudson Valley for much of the day Tuesday. And DPW crews are still out there laying down salt on the roads. YNN's Meredith Zaritheny has more.
MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. -- Day two of wintery weather across the Hudson Valley.
"So we're prepared we're ready to go, we need to keep the streets open for safety and commerce, so our crews are ready to roll," said Joseph DeStefano, City of Middletown Mayor.
With snow falling much of the region was under a winter weather advisory through Tuesday afternoon. Trying to stay ahead of the storm, DPW Crews in Middletown prepared for the worst, but hoped for the best.
"The roads are pretty much pretreated, our trucks are loaded, we have plenty of salt we did stock up," said Jacob Tawil, City of Middletown Department of Public Works Commissioner.
While those workers were ready to go, it turned out the storm wasn't as bad as it was first forecasted. Many schools had snow days, and for commuters, the snow ended in time for the evening commute. But officials warn things could get worse overnight.
"But this is a snow storm so we're used to it, it's no problem it should be fine," said Tawil.
Snow is not sticking to the roads right now, but as temperatures drop, DPW officials say roads could become slick with patches of ice.
"Tell people lookout for black ice on the roads please be careful and just be safe, slow down take a little bit longer to get to where you're going," said Tawill.
"But our goal is to make the streets safe and passable," said Mayor DeStefano.
