Heavy Snow Forecast For Upstate New York This Weekend
Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend which means it will start to feel more like Spring. So we thought!
Gotta love March in Upstate New York, right? Last weekend we hit 65 degrees and we are supposed to start getting our spring fever really going this weekend as we set our clocks ahead one hour at 2 am Sunday. Well, the extra hour of daylight will be there at the end of the day Sunday, but it looks like it will be reflecting off a fresh blanket of snow. And let me apologize now - I think I may have jinxed us by speculating we could have one of our least snowy winters on record this year.
Another Round of March Snow Coming To Upstate New York Saturday
AccuWeather is reporting a "potential bomb-cyclone" where frigid arctic air and a gulf storm converge could bring heavy bands of snow to Upstate New York this Saturday that could fall at a rate of 1 to 3 inches per hour in certain areas. Based on the storm's current track the greater Albany area could get 3 to 6 inches of accumulation, with areas to the west and north falling in a bang with the potential of 6 to 12 inches of show. How much snow we end up getting will depend on how far south that cold arctic air goes.
