Ulster County should see a general 4 to 8 inches of snow tomorrow. Higher amounts are possible out toward Woodstock and Onteora. Lowest amounts will be to the south (Wallkill and Marlboro) where more sleet is likely to mix in. Looking for around 6 inches of snow in Kingston. Here's the general timeline of what to anticipate in Kingston.

7:45am Saturday

About an inch of snow fell between 8pm and 3am last night.
Our next storm is on deck for tomorrow.

Snow should begin early Sunday morning …likely between 7am and 9am… and taper off Sunday night. Still likely looking at 4 to 8 inches of snow and sleet. The trend over the past 24 hours has been for a cooler storm, so it appears that the chances for pure rain mixing in are diminishing, but it's still something to monitor as this would limit storm totals. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the potential of 7+ inches of snow. You can see the complete advisory »Here«.

Below, I've put together a brief info graphic explaining the differences between the major winter weather headlines issued by the National Weather Service.

12PM Friday

It is well established in the archives that a large snow storm can result in a double snowday. However, all of the storms that have done so have always ended very late in the day. It is unprecedented over the past 13 years that a storm ending at 2pm cancels classes the next day! Nevertheless, that is what has happened.
Enjoy the snow day!
