Forecast Discussion:
Snow showers are likely into the late evening and early overnight tonight. Skies turn partly cloudy with lows in the 20s.

A potent clipper system will slide by us Friday and bring some snow, and possibly a mix or rain, to us late. Snow will be wet, not light and fluffy. The chance of precipitation is 100%. Highs climb into the low and mid 40s, but as precipitation starts falling they drop into the low and mid 30s. Snow tapers off overnight. Total accumulations will likely range from 2-5” with 3-6” possible in the Catskills. As usual, in events this time of year, elevation will be important. Higher elevations would likely see the higher end of these ranges and valleys would see lower end. There is also a chance, given the current storm track, that some rain or mixed showers could develop near and south of the PA border.  This would cut accumulations.

Sun and clouds are forecast for Saturday with highs in the mid 40s. Some rain showers are possible late Sunday. The chance of precipitation is 20% with highs in the low to mid 50s.

Monday brings partly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 40s. Next Tuesday looks like a sun and cloud mix with highs around 50. Toward mid and late next week some signs point toward our weather turning a bit warmer.  Some rain returns next Thursday with highs in the low 50s.
