CAPITAL REGION – Snow is on the way for parts of the region Thursday night into Friday morning, according to The National Weather Service.
Rain Thursday may change into wet snow overnight into Friday. A coating of snow to one inch is possible in the valley areas, the service said. One to three inches is possible in the southern Adirondacks.
The weather service also put out high- and low-end possibilities. The service estimated the high end – a 1 in 10 chance – of 4 to 6 inches across the region.
The greatest chance for accumulating snow, however, is east, in southern Vermont, the service said.
The weather service urged caution if traveling.
Thursday’s high at the Albany County Airport is expected to be 45, while Thursday night’s low is expected to be 31. Friday at the airport is only expected to get up to 39, while Friday night temperatures are expected to dip to 21.
For some perspective, the service also highlighted on Facebook the Oct. 29-30, 2011 Nor’Easter that hit the region. That storm dumped one to two feet of snow across the area.
