If you are curious what it looks like to drive during Winter Storm Stella in the Hudson Valley, well here you go.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency beginning at midnight Tuesday.

Most local politicians also issued state of emergencies for their local counties in the Hudson Valley, including Ulster, Orange and Dutchess Counties.

“All roadways in Dutchess are closed and traffic is prohibited except for: medical and health facility personnel, law enforcement and public safety personnel, first responders, utility, maintenance and public works personnel, snow removal sanding, salting and clearing operations personnel, facility operations persons deemed necessary for plant operations by their employers and public and government personnel involved in the emergency operations,” Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro said.

All non-essential travel on all Orange County roads are banned until 11 p.m. Tuesday.

In their final snowfall forecast, Hudson Valley Weather predicted 16 to 24 inches of snow for the entire Hudson Valley and the Catskills, with the chance of some areas seeing up to 30 inches of snow.
