The average date of Kingston's first snow is November 30th, meaning that half of all winters see snow before then. Two storms will roll through the region this week. With increasingly cold air moving over the region, there is the potential for some wet snow or frozen precipitation at the onset of the second storm.

Today we'll see generally clear and calm conditions as a storm system develops well to our south over Texas. Tonight the storm will move up the coast bringing rain after midnight. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s as the precipitation begins, so it is quite possible that some sleet may fall with the rain. However, if sleet does mix in it will be too warm for it to accumulate. Additionally, as the storm progresses, it will erode cold air above the ground changing any sleet over to plain rain. Rain should taper off by Tuesday afternoon. Behind the storm colder air will filter into the region for Wednesday and Thursday. We'll see intervals of sun and clouds Wednesday and Thursday as high temperatures fall into the 30s; low temperatures will dip into the 20s. This cold air will set the stage for potential snow Thursday night as a second storm moves in. The storm will be very similar to tonight's, but with colder air in place it is likely to begin as wet snow Thursday night. Best chance of snow will be after sunset Thursday. A gradual transition from snow to sleet to rain is likely Thursday night into Friday morning. This storm will need to be monitored this week, but there is currently the potential for light snow accumulation.
