Friday flakes ❄️
Hello and happy meteorological spring, even if it doesn’t look or feel like it right now!
The region received a rather uniform 6-8 inches of snow on Monday night and Tuesday, good enough for our biggest (and most well-behaved) storm of the season.
We’ll see a fair bit of that melt-off with temperatures around 40 today (Wednesday) and 50 on Thursday…
A storm moving into California today threatens to reach us later Friday and add to the snow pack, but probably not to the level we just experienced.
Compared to the event on Monday night, this storm looks to track a little farther west and north, allowing for slightly warmer conditions across the Hudson Valley.
As of early Wednesday, here are the key messages:
Timing: Friday evening - Saturday morning; probably not starting until after school ends on Friday
Most likely precipitation type: snow/sleet to rain, dependent on elevation
Temperatures: in the low to mid 30s
Impact: at this point, the impact from the expected storm on Friday night is looking to be lower than the storm on Monday night, but a few inches of wet snow are possible.
More to come…
