Forecast Overview
Last Updated: 10:00PM November 13th

10:00PM Thursday

Kingston is currently seeing its first snowflakes of the season!

Looking at the radar this evening, we are sandwiched between two bands of precipitation. The first band, to our south and east consists of mainly rain, and has been responsible for our precipitation thus far. A second band is located to our north and west, and consists of snow.

The band to our south will continue to slowly move away from us. However, the second band will keep the threat of snowfall going through about 1AM. Based on radar trends, we could see up to an inch of wet snow accumulating on grassy surfaces with a light coating possible on some walkways. Still not really anticipating any notable roadway accumulations. While some slick spots can't be ruled out, widespread black ice does not look to be an issue as temperatures fall to around 30.

9:45PM Radar

11:00AM Thursday

A coastal storm will spread, mainly light precipitation across the region tonight into Friday morning. The precipitation should start as rain showers late this evening, and may mix with or change over to snow for a couple of hours early Friday morning. Am currently not expecting much in the way of snow accumulations, however these early season systems can be difficult to forecast when they're close to the freezing line. Current thinking is that if there are any snow accumulations, they should be limited to mainly grassy surfaces as temperatures will be right around the freezing line.

There will likely be elevation differences in any snow amounts, and the hills outside of the immediate city will have a better chance of seeing accumulation.

Update by 10PM tonight.
