Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone. Today we'll see the clouds thickening ahead of the next storm system which will bring a widespread accumulating snow to the region starting later this evening, overnight and all day tomorrow. Highs today will be in the upper teens and low 20s.
Snow will develop this evening and may be heavy at time after midnight into midday Monday. The heaviest snow appears to be from the Mohawk valley south with lighter amounts across the northern Adirondacks... Once again there will be a fairly sharp cut-off from north to south.
A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect beginning THIS EVENING AT 9 PM continuing into Monday evening for the region. There looks to be a wide swath of 9-13" of snow accumulation through the capital District, Mohawk valley and the upper Hudson Valley south of Albany and Berkshire county but north of Poughkeepsie. Lesser amounts across the northern Adirondacks and southern Hudson Valley.
Travel conditions will deteriorate rapidly late Sunday night and Monday morning. Significant snowfall rates Monday morning into the afternoon are expected. In addition, the very cold air will reduce the effectiveness of salt. Have contingency plans ready for school delays and/or closings for Monday.
After the storm moves out Tuesday frigid air will return. Temperatures will remain well below average for the rest of the week with most days holding in the teens for highs.
Try and stay warm and be very careful on the roads coming home from your Super Bowl parties!!
