After toying with lowering probabilities, I have decided to leave them as they are, mainly due to the fact that any slick conditions that do develop will occur between 5AM and 8AM. I will have a brief update by 10PM.
A delay is possible Thursday morning, but not likely.


6:00PM Update:
Temperatures for tonight's storm are forecast to run a degree or two higher than forecast this morning. Temperatures are now forecast just reach the freezing mark for a few hours early Thursday morning.

Rain showers will move into the region around midnight tonight.
Rain may mix with snow and sleet prior to 5AM.

The overnight low of 32 degrees will occur between 5AM and 7AM.
We will likely see a change over to sleet or freezing rain during this time.
Accumulations will be nearly non-existent in the immediate Kingston area, but the more snow-prone areas out towards Tillson and Rifton may see slick conditions develop.

Frozen precipitation will transition back over to plain rain showers by 8AM. Rain showers will taper off by noon.

A winter weather advisory is still in effect from midnight tonight until noon Thursday, citing that areas may see a coating of ice "here and there," and any ice accretion warrants an an advisory. There is the potential for slick conditions during the morning commute.
