•Areas of dense fog with limited visibility will continue to impact the region through this afternoon, this is called advection fog and is the result of warm air traveling over the colder snowpack, this fog can create near zero visibility at times. This decreased visibility can mask flooding across roadways and icy conditions, please use caution traveling
•Scattered showers will be common through the morning into the early afternoon
•A line of heavy rain and embedded thunder will cross the region between 1PM and 4PM
•Flooding on roadways will be common when this line moves through this afternoon
•A period of moderate to heavy snow is possible across the higher terrain later this afternoon as this line of showers moves through
•Isolated areas of slick travel will linger into the afternoon where temps struggle above freezing
•Temps dropping into the 20’s overnight will lead to widespread issues with refreezing of rainfall and snowmelt on roadways
A look at the most recent run of the HRRR model shows this line of heavier showers pulling through the region mid afternoon, with snow falling across the NW Catskills.
Now a look at the low temps tonight, as you can see widespread lows dropping into the 20’s can be expected overnight. This will result in widespread icy conditions across the region as standing water, melt rate and previous rainfall begins to refreeze, please factor this into your overnight and morning travel.
