Winter Storm Nika Arrives
Another winter storm is ready to pound the Albany-Saratoga area. After a few days of dumping inches of snow in the Western and Central states Winter Storm Maximus hands the baton to Winter Storm Nika.
As of now, Weather.com reports that Nika could bring “a swath of significant snowfall will affect parts of western, central, Upstate New York, northern Pennsylvania and New England. This includes Buffalo, N.Y., Albany, N.Y., Concord, N.H., Worcester, Mass. and Portland, Maine, where more than six inches of snow is possible. Parts of these regions could pick up to a foot or more of snow.”
According to WTEN, there is “A WINTER STORM WARNING from midnight tonight (2/4) through 6pm Wednesday (2/5) evening for the entire region. The low pressure area in the deep south continues to gather strength and head our way. This low will be bringing snow to the area after midnight tonight and last through the day Wednesday. This low will actually re-form off the coast and bring lots of Atlantic moisture into the area in the form of snow. The snow will be heavy at times, especially the first half of Wednesday. Light snow will linger into Wednesday night before ending late. It looks like when all is said and done a general 8″-12″ inch snowfall for the greater Capital region is expected. In the North country a little bit less with 6″-10″ expected but into the Catskills, Greens and Berkshires we will see between 12″-16″ of snow.”
