Say it ain't snow!
Say it ain’t snow, at least not on a Friday night! 🤷♂️
Need to work on that timing…
Alas, that’s the play Mother Nature is drawing up: the next storm is set to arrive late Friday afternoon and last into Saturday morning, leaving behind several inches of wet snow and slush.
What? Wet snow, falling steadily Friday night. Due to above freezing temperatures, the snow will struggle to stick to roads, particularly during the day on Friday. During periods of steady, moderate snow on Friday night, slushy conditions may develop.
When? Starting 4:00 - 7:00 pm Friday from west to east, ending by midday Saturday.
How much? 2-4 inches. The highest amounts are forecast west of the Hudson River.
Impact? As a matter of caution, after school activities have an elevated chance of being cancelled on Friday. Slushy road conditions are likely on Friday night, mainly on secondary roads and in elevated areas. Roads may be slushy early Saturday, but improve quickly as the temperature rises and snow rates ease.
Saturday afternoon and Sunday look dry, but another snow event is possible on Monday and Tuesday…
As a word of caution, your weather apps might be going a bit crazy with snow accumulation. While a bigger storm isn’t out of the question, a lot needs to go “right” for a major snow storm to occur in mid-March. The potential Monday-Tuesday storm is dependent upon two atmospheric disturbances phasing, or merging together, over the Northeast. Right now, these disturbances are located in the North Pacific Ocean. They’ll move ashore on the West Coast on Friday afternoon, which is when the Hudson Valley’s forecast for Monday-Tuesday should come into clearer focus.
