ALBANY, N.Y. -- We have relative quiet weather across New York and New England through tonight. Temperatures on Wednesday reached the mid 30s, this is very close to normal.

On Thursday, an arctic cold front will be on the move through the Great Lakes. Clouds in advance of this system will be here by daybreak. Along the front, a band of snow showers will develop by late morning/early afternoon. There is the possibility of a few heavier snow squalls. At this time, it appears a quick dusting to an inch or two of snow will accumulate. With increasing winds, there will be reduced visibilities and some roads will become snow covered.

The Arctic air arrives in full force Thursday night and by Friday morning, wind chills will be well below zero. Early temperatures Friday will range from near zero in the Adirondacks to about 10 in Albany. NNW winds will be averaging 20-30mph with gust over 40. There will be very low wind chills. Temperatures will not rise much on Friday, in fact readings will only be in the mid teens with wind chills 0-5 below in the Capital Region, and 20 below wind chills for the North Country. This blast of cold will last well into the weekend.
