WHITE PLAINS - Hundreds of tons of salt arrived in White Plains on Saturday, just in time for the next snow storm.

On the heels of a winter weather advisory promising still more snow, the DPW says they told distributors to drop salt off "day or night."

More than 100 DPW workers will use an estimated total 2,000 tons of salt for the anticipated snowstorm.

DPW Commissioner Joseph "Bud" Nicolleti says the season has been brutal on the crews who have to forge ahead during long shifts, with little relief between storms.

Crews plan to work 12-hour shifts once snow begins.

"It's going to occur right during the rush hour peak," said Nicolleti. "We will be plowing all night and into the morning."

Snow is expected to arrive Sunday night. Anywhere between 3 to 6 inches of snow are expected, with higher accumulations south of I-84. The storm is expected to clear out by Monday.
