More Snow Before Spring – Winter Storm Warning Issued
While many of us were hoping that the last winter storm was on March 7 and 8, 2013, it looks like we're going to get hit one more time before Spring!
The clocks have gone ahead, ice fishing is officially over, and people have stopped submitting their creative snow sculptures. Spring arrives on Wednesday, March 20- but Mother Nature is not quite ready.
WTEN's Steve Caporizzo is watching another winter storm. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Albany Area from Monday, March 18 at 6pm through Tuesday, March 19 at 8pm, with snow expected to arrive between 4 and 8pm on Monday afternoon.
According to WTEN's website here are the details: "A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect from 6PM tonight through Tuesday 8PM. By late this afternoon/early evening the winter storm will affect us with snow or snow mixed with rain to start. Tonight into very early Tuesday morning a steady widespread, at times heavy snow will fall across the area (with 1-2 inches an hour possible in some places) before it tapers off for little bit early Tuesday. The precipitation may even mix with some sleet of freezing rain across the Catskills, CD and Berkshires and even change to rain to the south briefly Tuesday morning."
