Here's NewsChannel 13 Meteorologist Paul Caiano's WAMC Regional Forecast:
Snow moving in from south to north during the morning, becoming steady into the afternoon. 1-3 inches north of I-90 by evening, 3-6 inches south. Highs in the lower 30's
Snow tonight, heavy at times. Becoming windy. Lows in the 20's.
Storm total accumulations will range from 12-18 inches across most of the Catskills, Taconics, Berkshires and Green Mountains to 8-12 inches in the I-88 corridor through the Greater Capital District and into the southern Champlain Valley. Westbound toward the Southern Tier of New York and the Western Mohawk Valley 4-8 inches of snow is likely. 4-8 inches of snow can also be expected across most of the Central and Northern Adirondacks into the Northern Champlain Valley. There will also be highly variable amounts in the Southernmost Berkshires, the Litchfield Hills eastward into southern New England where a snow sleet mix could limit accumulations for a time. Still, in these areas, 4 to 8 inches of snow is likely with amounts as high as 12 inches where there is minimal sleet intrusion.
Light snow ending early tomorrow then some sunshine during the afternoon. Windy. Highs in the mid 30's.
