ALBANY – The Capital Region is set to see more snow starting Monday night – a foot or more, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow accumulations of between 8 and 15 inches are possible with the storm.

A winter storm warning has been issued was issued as of Sunday evening. Snowfall was expected to begin mid-afternoon Monday in Schenectady and by early evening Monday for points north.

The service Sunday evening forecast a swath of 8- to 12-inch snowfall totals from Albany County through most of Schenectady County and most of Fulton and Montgomery counties.

An earlier estimate Sunday had Schenectady County higher, from 12 to 18 inches, but that estimate reduced by Sunday evening.

Most of Schoharie County and a portion of Albany County was still expected to get between 12 and 18 inches, the service said Sunday evening.

Southern Saratoga County was expected to get between 6 and 8 inches, with northeast Saratoga County between 4 and 6 inches.

The service, however, noted that much of Schenectady, Saratoga and Albany counties marked the greatest uncertainty on expected snowfall totals.

Snow is to start Monday afternoon and go through Tuesday afternoon making travel difficult and impacting commutes, the service said.

“This will be a long-duration, slow-moving storm,” the service said.
