A period of snow,sleet,freezing rain and rain has impacted the region overnight, awhile southern parts of the region and some valley locations have seen mostly rain, we do have some icy areas as well. Higher terrain,northern river valley, sheltered mountain valleys and hilltowns have some lingering snow and ice covered roadways this morning. You can expect varying conditons if traveling across the region this morning.
Rising temps throughout the morning will continue to aid in improving conditions through sunrise into the morning hours. Winds are a bit breezy as well as the deepening storm to our west departs into Canada winds will begin to subside. We should see some partial clearing this morning as well, temps should top out in the 30’s to 40’s with valley locations topping off in the upper 40’s. Another disturbance will impact the region tonight with mostly liquid precipitation, although some spotty freezing rain is possible across the Catskills.
Cooler weather returns by Friday as does and chance for some light snow for the weekend. The exact details on the Saturday snow are a bit unclear at this point, but it appears the lower Hudson Valley has the best chance at seeing some light accumulations of snow as warm moist air overruns a stalled frontal boundary located south of our region. This boundary will be responsible for the colder air moving in on Friday. More details on this in a later forecast, everyone have a great day and travel safe this morning.
