*** HVW Commentary ***
This advisory is ONLY for Columbia county. This persistent snow band will weaken during the day on Wednesday. 2 to 4 inches of snow are possible, mainly in extreme eastern Columbia County (east of Copake Lake and Chatham). The majority of the county will see a coating to an inch or 2.
For the remainder of the Hudson Valley. A few scattered snow showers and flurries are possible. In a longer snow shower, a dusting to a 1/4 inch of snow is possible… but most will see barely a dusting in spots. Conditions should dry out toward morning on Wednesday… and begin improving quickly in the valley. Catskills and higher elevations… along with eastern Columbia county… may be a bit slower to improve Wednesday morning. Be sure to check the conditions in your area Wednesday morning before heading out.
