It's snowing!

Light snow began falling around 4:30PM. Expect snow to continue throughout the night. A quick change over to rain is expected around 7am as warm air works its way up the Valley. Rain should taper off by 9am or 10am. Around 3 inches of snow is anticipated. Forecast snow amounts and cutoff times are at at a tricky juncture. The projected timing for the changeover to rain and the overall end time is relatively early for a cancellation- last Monday's delay saw snow taper off around 8am. However, last Monday also recorded two inches of snow, so three enhances the probabilities. For now, will defer altering the probabilities until the 10pm update.

9:00AM Sunday

A storm system will trek from the southern Plains to the Great Lakes today, triggering widespread snowfall over our region. The following is currently anticipated for the Mid-Hudson Valley and Kingston. Snow should begin falling early this evening, between 4PM and 7PM. Once it begins, snow should continue steadily throughout the night with accumulations of 3 to 5 inches likely by sunrise. Higher amounts on the order of 4 to 8 inches will be likely across the Catskills of western Ulster County. Warmer air will gradually filter into the region during the morning hours, and a changeover to rain or a non-accumulating mix of precipitation is anticipated by 8am. All rain and snow should taper off by noon.

Kingstonsnows will be watching the storm trends throughout the day with posts here and on the Facebook page as adjustments are needed.

Saturday December 10th

Another storm is slated to affect the region with snow tomorrow night into Monday. This will be the third storm of this kind. Currently expecting several inches of snowfall, beginning tomorrow afternoon. Snow is not likely to begin accumulating until tomorrow evening. Snow should persist throughout the night, with a brief changeover to rain possible during the morning, before everything tapers off by noon. Currently, 2 to 4 inches of snow is anticipated in the Kingston area — for reference, last Monday's storm dropped 2.2 inches of snow. Updates will be provided throughout the day tomorrow
