11:00AM Thursday

As of 11:00AM, the forecast is right on target.
Currently have about 1.6 inches of snow in Kingston
with light snow falling.

Expect light snow to continue through the mid afternoon before beginning to gradually beginning to increase in intensity.
The strongest snowfall rates of about half an inch per hour should occur tonight between 8:00PM and 2:00AM.

Steady snow should continue through at least 8:00AM tomorrow. Snow showers may continue through the rest of the morning.

We remain on track for totals of around 9 inches,
and the 7 to 11 inch range is still valid.

Another storm system looks to impact us Sunday into Monday. This storm has the potential to produce rain, snow, or a wintry mix. I'll wait until we get through the current storm before beginning to discuss this second one.
