Wintry Wednesday update
Good day! It is going to be a good day if you like snow… but you’ll have to be patient, as it will take a little while for the “good stuff” to get here.
🔑 Like a sports TV segment, here are the five keys to the game:
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Sullivan and western Ulster, while a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Orange, eastern Ulster, Rockland, Dutchess, Putnam, and northern Westchester
A narrow band of snow is expected to stretch into the Hudson Valley between 9:00-11:00 am, but accumulation before noon will range from a coating to at most an inch in the Catskills
Temperatures range from 23-32 across the region (as of 4:30 am), so it will stick on arrival
Snow rates will increase after 1:00 pm and could reach 1/2 inch to an inch per hour between 2:00-4:00 pm — this is when road conditions will deteriorate
Light to moderate snow is expected from 4:00-7:00 pm before changing to rain
I still like my range of 2-5 inches, although I think there will be more 2-3 inch amounts across the region than 4-5
Temperatures will warm to near 40 degrees overnight as rain washes away the snow — for this reason, Thursday delays aren’t particularly likely, but could occur in the Catskills (note, it will be windy on Thursday 🌬️)
The weather doesn’t look half bad through the weekend. The next storm threat looks to be toward the middle of next week.
Enjoy the snow! ✌️
