More Snow for Parts of the Hudson Valley This Afternoon
The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for parts of the Hudson Valley, which includes Orange and Putnam counties.
The bulletin calls for light snow to develop this afternoon (Friday, Dec. 15) between 2pm and 4pm and continue into the evening. The National Weather Services says to expect anywhere from one to two inches, with the highest amounts over New York City and Long Island. The snow is expected to move out after 7pm tonight.
Looking at the local forecast for Middletown, the National Weather Service says there is a 40 percent chance of snow, but they are not mentioning any amounts. The forecast for the Poughkeepsie area is calling for a 20 percent chance of snow.
Doesn't sound like a huge snow event, but with the cold temperatures, any snow we see will be sticking to the roads. The cold air has been in place too long and the surface is cold enough for snow to stick anywhere it falls.
