10:00PM Update

Overall this evening the radar has revealed widespread snow showers. Most of what is shown on the radar over our area has been evaporating prior to reaching the ground. However, the air should moisten up enough to allow light snow to develop by about midnight. Based on radar trends snow should taper off around 5AM-6AM. Still looks like accumulations should be somewhere around 2 inches.

Because temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s, am not anticipating the kind of snow that cakes on roadways, however, morning impacts are likely. Will leave the probabilities as are. A delay is likely, but not definite… a cancellation is not completely out of the question, especially if snow showers linger into the mid morning.

Bitterly cold air will filter in for the weekend.
The cold will continue through the first half of the new week.
Full site update on Sunday.

6:20PM Thursday

A weak storm system will move across the region tonight.
Light snow should develop by about 11PM.
Light snow should continue through about 5AM.
The Kingston area should see around 2 inches.
Temperatures will be in the mid 20s.

The probabilities right now favor a delay.
However, I would like to see how the radar evolves between now and 10PM as 2 inches of snow if well timed could lead to cancellations. Generally for the cancellation scenario we would want to see the snow continuing through about 7AM.
