Tuesday Discussion : Another Quick Shot of Snow

The pattern is slowly changing, and gradually becoming milder and less active.  But before we get there, we’re seeing some minor snow events.  We’ll have another little disturbance on Tuesday, as another weak front pushes through around mid day.

Futurecast Radar : 7am to 7pm

Wet snow showers will push into the region between 10am and 12pm in most areas.  Temps will be a couple degrees warmer than Monday, so with temps in the mid 30s, some of the snow showers could mix with rain showers in the valley.  A slushy coating is possible in the valley in a few spots… but in the Catskills a quick inch or so is possible as the snow showers move through.  Afternoon highs should climb into the mid and upper 30s.

From there, things quiet down a bit… but on Wednesday, we should see afternoon temps jump into the mid and possibly upper 40s!  A wonderful and welcome change from our recent weather pattern.  You can get our latest forecast on the main HVW page.

Snow Recap : Thursday 2/18 – Friday 2/19

Things have been kind of crazy lately, and so we haven’t posted our snow history map from last week.  We’ll share the snow history map from Monday once we have all the data in.  Likely Tuesday night or Wednesday.  As far as last Thursday and Friday… the snow started in some places around 2am Thursday, and ended Friday afternoon around 5pm.  We saw a general 3 to 5 inches around there region over the 2 day period.  The forecast called for a general 3 to 7 inches of snow, and most places saw that.

Considering it snowed on and off for nearly 36 hours… these snow totals were quite low.
