The National Weather Service has us under a winter weather advisory later today. We'll see if they get this one right. Their predictions for this past Thursday and yesterday were very off.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO
10 AM EST MONDAY...
* WHAT...Snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 6
* WHERE...The eastern Catskills, Mid Hudson Valley, central and
southern Taconics and Berkshires.
* WHEN...From 4 PM this afternoon to 10 AM EST Monday.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The
hazardous conditions could impact the Monday morning commute.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Expect snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
Here is what the TV stations are hoping for:
