Latest Forecast update from Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:

A weak system will be passing south and east of the capital region late tonight into Saturday morning. Mainly from Albany south and east will see some light snowfall through late Saturday morning, not amounting to too much, at most 1-2″ mainly in the Berkshires.

We will get a break through Saturday afternoon, maybe even seeing a few breaks of sunshine before our next system drops south and east from the upper midwest… This will bring a general coating to 2 inches for just about everyone going through Saturday night.

We will get a break through Sunday afternoon, again maybe seeing some peeks of sunshine, that is before our next, more significant weather system moves through the northeast. Right now it is still spinning in the Pacific Ocean, but it will redevelop on the eastern side of the Rockies and scoop up a significant amount of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico before it sets its eyes on the Northeast.

But before we get to that we have two weaker systems moving through on Saturday, by Saturday morning expect just some light snow, may fall a bit heavier through the Berkshires. 

Then we will get a break, but by Saturday evening, if you have any plans you may encounter some light snow. Not too much to really worry about, mainly a neusance snowfall.

Behind the storm Sunday night into Monday it will get downright cold, especially for the begining of March! But we look fairly quiet until Friday when we will see some more snowfall Friday night into Saturday. Have a great night!
