Wednesday morning rose cold and quiet on Rockville Centre, with temperatures in the single digits after a snowstorm that left almost 10 inches of snow.
Village DPW plows continued to hum down the streets after a full night of work, but the schools remain closed. A handful of residents were out cleaning walks, but most elected to stay inside, avoiding windchills that the National Weather Service said will reach up to 36 miles per hour and bring the effective temperature in the area down to -14 degrees.
Although the snow stopped earlier than expected, the streets remain icy, and some snow is starting to melt in the sunlight and freeze. Residents are warned to take care driving, and bundle up well to face the frigid climate when leaving their homes.
