Friday flakes ❄️
1-3 inches. Is it really enough for a snow day? At the end of the day, it all comes down to timing. Like Tuesday’s event, light snow will coincide with both the morning and afternoon commute. However, it looks like there will be a touch less snow than on Tuesday.
For that reason, the National Weather Service has yet to post any advisories for the Hudson Valley as of this writing.
What? Light snow.
When? Starting from south-to-north from 6:00-9:00 am on Friday. Tapering to flurries on Friday evening.
How much? 1-3 inches. The highest totals will likely be found across Orange, Rockland, and Sullivan County, with slightly lower amounts for Putnam, Dutchess, and Ulster County. See the map below for projected snowfall totals from one of NOAA’s high resolution models.
Impact? With temperatures in the 20s, roads becoming snow-dusted during the Friday morning commute. Lingering salt treatments from earlier in the week may prevent snow from sticking to main roads. Untreated secondary roads and sidewalks will become snow-covered. Like Tuesday, schools may initially call a delay and reassess conditions after a few hours. Overall, impacts look minor but will coincide with peak travel times.
You can follow along on X for updates later today, including school predictions around 6:00 pm 🙂
