99 Miles from a Winter Wonderland

In Babylon, mid-morning snow turns back to rain.

A soaking rain is expected to drown the Babylon area with about an inch of rain by tonight, and 1-to-3 inches of snow could fall here by early tomorrow, according to a Weather.com forecast.

The forecast also calls for 40-mile-per-hour winds.

Not ready for snow? Well, it could be worse. This photo from East Fishkill was sent in by Patch.com Westchester Senior Regional Editor  It was a much different scene at Southards Pond, where we snapped our less-dramatic picture.

East Fishkill is only 99 miles away.

Is that the Rockies?

Almost -- in the time I snapped that picture, three more inches fell in no time flat! We are officially at 4 inches (by a 9-year-old's ruler.)

Pouring in West Babylon.

Rain, then snow, followed by hail, then rain and whole lot of wind right now!
