NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A sprawling winter storm slammed the reigon Saturday, with up to 3 inches expected in the city and even more across the Hudson Valley and western suburbs.

A winter weather advisory has been issued from 10 a.m. on Saturday to 1 a.m. on Sunday. Gov. Cuomo is urging people to be cautious on roadways, which could be especially slick given the cold temperatures.

A Snow Alert has been issued by the city's Department of Sanitation.
