Brief Overview

12:00PM Saturday

A storm system currently pulling together over the Western and Central US will bring a widespread snowfall to the eastern US Monday into Tuesday. An expansive blocking high pressure will also set up across northern-tier of the country, setting the northern boundary of the storm. At this time it appears that the high pressure will be strong enough to keep most of the snow with this system just to our south.

Snow showers may develop ahead of the storm system along the edge of the high on Sunday. This will give the opportunity for light snow accumulations during the day.

Late Sunday night into early Monday morning, the main storm will skirt to the south of our region. At this time it appears that Kingston will be right along the cutoff line, and total accumulations will range from a trace to under three inches. Further south, portions of Ulster County may see up to four inches. Obviously, any deviation in the storm track will affect totals, so that will be the aspect to watch over the next 24 hours.

The same blocking high at play with this system will dominate our weather through the up coming week. By next weekend there is a possibility that it will deflect a second potential coastal storm.
