*** 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.

  1. Please be careful choosing your colors to outline areas. In the Tuesday night update map, you outlined Columbia and Rensselaer counties in red… just below the red Tornado Warning caption! I’ll assume you didn’t mean there was a tornado around, but red (and blue) are poor choices if there might be tornado or severe thunderstorm warning captions on the map. I would suggest a bright yellow or green that isn’t used for severe weather captions, but stands out from the data.
