Winter Storm Could Bring 7+ Snow To New York Early Next Week
After what has been a below-average season for snowfall so far, we are seeing a more active pattern of weather for the last few weeks of the season.
Don't blink, but winter is nearing the finish line. We are having more daylight, Jumpin' Jacks is getting ready to open, and oh yeah, the first day of spring (March 20th) is only 3 weeks away from this coming Monday. While all signs are pointing to spring, the weather is acting more like winter and it looks like most of the area will see a decent snowfall!
Another Winter Storm Is Moving Across The US
Our most recent storm brought a mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain to the area on Thursday and northern areas like Saratoga Springs and Glens Falls got around 3 to 4 inches of accumulation, according to the National Weather Service.
As we head into next week we are watching another potential winter weather event moving across the nation that would affect the Northeast and Upstate New York next Monday and Tuesday. And this one will bring mostly snow to Upstate New York Capital Region.
As you see in the snowfall probability map above from the National Weather Service this next storm has very good odds of bringing 7-plus inches of snow accumulation to the area. We will keep a close eye on this one and will update snowfall predictions as they come more into focus.
Before this latest round of winter weather, it seemed Albany had the potential to have one of its least snowy winters on record, but it looks like Old Man Winter is not having any of it! With a few weeks of winter left and what now feels like a more active pattern of winter precipitation, a few inches of snow here and there will certainly keep this winter out of that top 10.
So much for an early spring!
