Snow Squall Could Hit During Wednesday’s Morning Rush Hour
The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for all of Upstate New York on Wednesday. A quick moving snow squall could dump a few inches of snow right during morning rush hour. The couple inches of snow isn't that bad, but it's the 45 MPH wind gusts and fast falling snow that could make it a real nightmare during the morning commute.
A snow squall is defined as a quick-hitting storm that lasts 15 to 30 minutes, dropping snow at rates up to 2 inches an hour and reducing visibility to a quarter-mile or less. In addition, the blowing snow could effect the afternoon commute as well.
Sounds like maybe we should just call off Wednesday completely and just stay home.
It also looks like we have more winter weather coming this weekend and this could be a much stronger storm. The National Weather Service has issued a separate Winter Weather Warning for this storm this weekend in Upstate New York.
