With only 8 days left until Spring, here we are sitting through another winter storm.

We are getting updates that as the temperature drops between 5 and 9pm, there is the potential for a Flash Freeze and up to a 1/4 inch of ice in some areas. Please be careful on your afternoon commute, and let’s all hope that this is the FINAL winter storm of the season.

According to News10ABC, here’s the latest update from Steve Teeling:

A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for the high country north, west and east into Vermont until 11am Thursday. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for the rest of the area which does include the greater Capital region. Snow, a wintry mix and rain will be found north to south across our region today.

The worst part of the storm will be tonight. The wind picks up BIG time – possible white-out conditions as any wintry mix changes to all snow. Temperatures will drop quickly – with a flash-freeze likely. And, there could be a period of freezing rain before completely changing over to plain snow. Ice with snow on top of it will make for very treacherous driving conditions tonight into Thursday. Most of the snow accumulation across the Albany area will occur overnight into Thursday morning.

HIGH winds will develop late tonight and continue into Thursday.  Blowing and drifting of snow is possible, especially north and northeast of Albany.  By Thursday morning, the winds will be gusting out of the north and west at 40-50mph!


TODAY: Snow – Adirondacks, North Country, Central Vermont.  Wintry mix and rain elsewhere.  HIGHS: 32° to 38° and dropping slowly.

TONIGHT: Wintry mix to all snow, heavy at times. Becoming very windy and much colder. LOWS: 4° to 11°.

THURSDAY: Morning snow ends, becoming partly sunny in the afternoon. Very windy and frigid! HIGHS: 11-19. Winds NW 20-40 Mph with gusts possible to 50 Mph.
