WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Widespread dense fog is forming across Westchester County just in time for the Friday afternoon commute as a cold front approaches, the National Weather Service said.

A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 5 p.m. Friday, the National Weather Service said. The advisory is for all of the Hudson Valley, southern Connecticut, northern New Jersey, New York City and Long Island.

Visibility for drivers will be a quarter of a mile or less, making for difficult travel conditions. Drivers should slow down, use low beam headlights and leave plenty of distance ahead in case of a sudden stop.

A cold front approaching from the West is accompanied by showers and a wind shift to the west Friday afternoon.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible Friday afternoon with high temperatures in the 40s. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch are expected, except with higher amounts in thunderstorms.

It will be mostly cloudy Friday evening, with gradual clearing and temperatures dropping into the mid-20s.

Saturday will be sunny, with a high in the high 40s or 50.

Remember the winter of 1995/1996 Very similar, but not qiuite as relentless.
This has really caused people to into a super funk.! I had a bad time with tne
95/96 storms, but being a senior citizen my walikng and steadimess have taken a toll on me. I dont care how vain you are walk around with a tr-pod cane, made of aluminum. They can be bought at any medical supply store and you will at least be able to brace yourself if you feel you're goig down. Also very helpul in getting back on your feet if there is anything nearby to lean on. Too bad they do not make ripple sole shoes like they did 50-60 years ago. I know they were ugly, but safety and comfort second to none.
If some one could design an abrasive style rubber that would fit over a soe, it might do a little bi better than black ice that's been unsalted. I no longer live in the Bronxville area in the winter but at 70, I relocated to a climate that suited my physical needs much better. I do have to make trips in to visit friends and family, but try to do it when the weather is a bit more stabile. GOOD LUCK-GODBLESS! and please don't over do it, Lawrence Hospital is always loaded even in the good weather,factoring this winter,I don't have to spell it out. All the best stay warm, be careful and geta cane.
