6PM Monday Update:

A storm system will move through New York on Tuesday bringing snow to much of the state. There is the potential for light snowfall in the Mid Hudson Valley. At this time, it appears likely that we will be on the edge of the storm and that warm air will be a factor. Precipitation is likely to begin as a period of light snow Tuesday morning before 7AM. By about 9 or 10AM, however, rising temperatures should be capable of causing a turnover to rain showers before everything ends around 1PM. At this time less than an inch of snow is anticipated. Some areas, especially along the river between Kingston and Wallkill could struggle to get more than a coating of snow. Out toward the Catskills, especially in the Onteora school district, several inches of snow are possible.

The combination of light total snowfall and a likely start time after 5AM are not very conducive for school impacts. There is a slight chance of a delay, especially if precipitation builds in before 5AM. If there are any school impacts, they will almost certainly be delays.


4PM Sunday Update:

Kingston's first snow of the season is now in the history books! Kingston picked up 4.0 inches on Saturday. Our attention now turns to the next storm system, which will impact New York on Tuesday. This storm has the potential to produce light snow accumulation Tuesday morning. The main factor for any school impacts with this system will be timing. Based on current trends, if we do get snow the most likely start time would be before 7AM. The next update on this storm will be Monday afternoon.
