Capital Region Snow Update: Some Areas Could Get Up To 18 Inches [MAP]
As Sunday's storm comes into focus, we officially have a Winter Storm Watch and parts of the region could see up to 18 inches.
! As we first reported earlier this week, a pretty good sized snowstorm is coming our way to wrap up the holiday weekend. We initially reported up to 11 inches of snow, but now some areas in the Capital Region could see up to a foot and a half. So, it looks like it would be a wise choice to head home from your Thanksgiving celebrations before Sunday
The National Weather Service (NWS) has officially issued a Winter Weather Watch for Sunday into Monday, and also released new snowfall predictions for the region. Around Albany we should see 8 - 12 inches of snow. But areas south and west of Albany and in Western MA/Southern VT could now see up to 18 inches of snow. You can see the accumulation predictions in the NWS weather map below:
The duration of this storm is now getting pretty long too, as it will stretch out over 2 days. The NWS is saying the snow will start Sunday morning and could get pretty heavy Sunday afternoon. We will then have a little lull Sunday night, with heavier snow resuming Monday. This one should wrap up Monday night.
