5:00AM Tuesday

As of 5:00AM, looks like light snow will develop during the
6-O'clock hour. Temperatures in Poughkeepsie bottomed out at just three degrees around 4AM, so snow will have no trouble sticking once it starts falling. Radar returns are not overly ominous, however, still looking for a solid coating by 7AM or 8AM… Up to two inches by 2PM. The rest of the discussion remains
unchanged from last night:

With snow expected to begin around sunrise, was tempted to up the cancellation probabilities. However, will remain appropriately conservative. The rest of the discussion
remains unchanged from earlier:

Light snow should develop between 5AM and 8AM.
Could be looking at at least a coating by 7AM or 8AM,
followed by up to two inches by 3PM.
Light snow should taper off after 3PM.
An additional half an inch through the evening is possible.

Leaning towards a cancellation,
but if it looks like snow will hold off until around 8AM,
then an early dismissal is possible.

This weekend's 8.5 inches of snow brought Kingston's seasonal snowfall to 11.8 inches. This is almost a third of the 2012-2013 season total, and over half of the 2011-2013 season total.
