Another Accumulating snowfall for the Higher Elevations

In less than one week another snowfall accumulating snowfall is in store for the higher elevations of the #518 area. Just like last Saturday night-early Sunday morning's snow, locations AT and Above 1500 feet have the highest chance for see a moderate snow accumulation.

Near the 1500 foot location snowfall amounts will be near 2-3 inches, near 2000 feet, 3-5" of snow are likely and elevations > 3000 feet will likely see 5-7" of snow with a couple of locally higher amounts possible. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Thursday 27 Oct 2016 for the Adirondacks and western Catskills. The snow will mix with some sleet and perhaps briefly some freezing rain before changing over to all rain by late Thursday night



Below is a  forecast animation (from the Hi-Res WRF model) showing the expected development of the rain and snow across eastern NY State and western New England.

It looks like Thursday evening's commute home will be when the "worst" of the wintry weather will occur. Be safe if you must travel!
