6AM Saturday Update

A total of about 2.8 inches of snow fell in Kingston between 4:30am and 11:30am. This brings the season total to 41.9 inches. Our attention now turns to a potentially significant snowstorm for Tuesday.

For more than 48hours there has been a growing probability of a significant winter storm impacting our region on Tuesday. The "players" that will converge to create this storm are now in place across North America. These include (1.) Cold air streaming in from Canada in the wake of yesterday's storm, (2.) A weather system that will impact the Pacific Northwest before tracking through the Great Plains, and (3.) Copious moisture over the Gulf of Mexico. It is now almost certain that these will result in a significant nor'easter (4.) off the Southeast coast by Monday. There is still some uncertainty in the specific track of the storm by the time it reaches the Northeast on Tuesday. The exact track will determine exactly where the heaviest snow falls. However, for over 48 hours the trend has been for the Mid-Hudson Valley to receive over 6 inches on Tuesday — with up to 12 inches possible. Details will continue to become more refined this weekend.
