Here’s The Latest On The Winter Storm Hitting The Capital Region Sunday & Monday
Traveling is going to be getting even more treacherous all day Sunday and Monday. As of Wednesday the The Weather Channel was predicting some snow this weekend. Now, it's A LOT of snow hitting A LOT of the state. So whether you're planning on doing some last minute Black Friday weekend shopping, or your coming back from grandma's house with a bag full of leftovers...or you're just trying ti figure out how your going to get to work on Monday we've got you covered.
Here's the latest timeline for the storm as it hits the Upstate starting Sunday morning. The latest from of what's going down from www.nyup.com.
Sunday morning. With temperatures in the 20s, the first wave of precipitation east of the Finger Lakes will be snow, starting a little after daybreak and falling steadily through the day. In Western New York expect more sleet and ice than snow.
Sunday afternoon. As the temperature rises closer to 32 degrees in the afternoon, some sleet or ice could mix into the snow. That could make for very slippery roads, especially in the Southern Tier, Capital Region and Hudson Valley, where the heaviest precipitation will fall throughout the storm.
Sunday night. Temperatures fall again, and any sleet or ice switches back over to all snow. The snow could be heavy at times, falling at rates up to 2 inches per hour in the Catskills and Capital Region.
Monday morning. Snow continues throughout the day, which could create hazardous driving at both morning and evening commutes. The snow could be intense in eastern New York, with up to 6 inches falling in Albany from sunrise to sunset. Snow will be lighter to the west, with Syracuse getting a couple of inches during the day.
So our total in the Capital Region could be up to a foot or more of the white fluffy stuff. Gas up the snowblower, make sure the blade is on the truck and get ready for some serious digging out.
