For this year it was a big deal for us…it actually snowed in Albany and accumulated. Any snow will be ending tonight…most areas had a heavy coating to to 2″….with some higher amounts in the Higher elevations-esp in Rensselaer County. Here’s a breakdown of some snowfall reports. We had 1″ here at the News10 Studios. By the way…check out the beautiful picture of snowflake today from Tracey Stott.
Latest Surface Maps….A Warm front slipped by to the north of us…this is what produced the burst of snow….As we head west-Clouds linger to MI…so the drying out process will be slow…clouds into tomorrow morning. Milder air works in for the next couple of days. A Storm way off in the SW…this may impact with some showers over the weekend…late Saturday-Sunday.
FUTURECAST…….Behind this area of snow…Low clouds will persist in Mid Day on Thursday-then slowly drying out. It will be breezy tomorrow. Nice Weather on Friday-as a cold front will be to our north. this may increase the clouds Friday afternoon-esp north of the Mohawk Valley.
TONIGHT: Snow slowly ending…another inch or two poss. east. Not much of a Temp drop tonight. THURSDAY: Morning clouds….then becoming Partly Sunny….bit milder.
Potential to see the Northern Lights….Not tonight with the clouds…but maybe tomorrow night. A Big solar Flare left the sun on Dec. 7th….the peak Geomagnetic Storm should be on the 10th.Find a Dark spot….with a view to the north low to the horizon. Will keep our fingers crossed
7-Day Forecast….Slightly milder air comes in for the end of the week…and increasing threat of showers later Saturday into Sunday. Then some cooler air works in. Right now, right through the 10-Day forecast….there are no major storms yet…..but some of the models are trying to show something later Thursday into Friday.
