The last time we had an inkling of a good-sized snowfall, the storm quickly shifted and brought us a whole bunch of rain last week. Looking at winter so far, after a cold and snowy start in December, the season itself has turned.

We had a mild stretch of weather in late December and early January, and while we have had some colder days kicking back in - whenever we get precipitation it always seems to get just warm enough to bring most of us rain.

Could This Week's Forecast Deliver On Real Snow? Depends On Location!

I think depends is the keyword here. Depends on where you call home.

According to the Weather Channel, a west coast storm moving eastward will bring a solid band of snow over most of Upstate New York that will get going on Thursday during the day and continue into Friday.

Which Areas Will Get the Most Snow?

Statewide and in the Capital Region specifically, the Weather Channel says to the north in areas around Glens Falls this storm should be snow throughout with up to 7 inches of accumulation possible. Current snowfall maps are calling for even more at higher elevations in the Adirondacks.

Head south around Saratoga Springs, and there will be periods of snow and then a wintry mix, with anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of accumulation possible. Once you get down to the Albany area for this one, it looks like mostly rain for the area.

We will keep tracking this now through the week - but right now looks like the further up the Northway you go, the more snow with this latest storm. This means my kids will be super bummed in Clifton Park!
