POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) - More snow is on the way for parts of upstate New York as officials in one Hudson Valley city still work on removing the snow that fell during last week’s big storm.

The storm dumped 21 inches of snow on the city of Poughkeepsie Thursday and Friday. Some streets remained clogged with snow into the weekend, prompting the mayor to declare a state of emergency on Sunday.

The Poughkeepsie Journal (https://pojonews.co/1cl4cl6 ) reports that the state of emergency is still in effect Tuesday and schools will remain closed until it’s over. School officials say they don’t want students walking in the street because many sidewalks haven’t been cleared from the previous storm.

Forecasts call for up to three inches of new snow by Tuesday afternoon in parts of the Hudson Valley.
