Q: What do you call a winter that refuses to let go?
A: This winter.

Yet another storm system will likely bring a round of snow
to the region on Monday.

Timing looks to be between 8AM and midnight on Monday. As far as accumulations go… generally 1 to 2 inches across the district with up to 4 inches possible across the Catskills, and extreme southern portions of Ulster and Dutchess Counties.

Kingston is on "Spring" Break beginning Monday.

For other districts that are not on spring break…

Generally, looking at up to a 30% chance of an early dismissal.
The best chances will be across extreme southern Ulster and Dutchess counties… namely from New Paltz and Wappingers over to Pawling, where half an inch to one inch of accumulation will be possible through 2PM. The Pawling area, in southeastern Dutchess, may see 1 to 2 inches during this time frame.

The heaviest snow with this system will actually fall to our south across central Pennsylvania and into interior New Jersey, where some spots may pick up to 6 inches.
