Parts of eastern New York could get as much as 4 inches of snow courtesy of a potential nor’easter making its way up the Atlantic Coast.
The National Weather Service says 1 to 4 inches is forecast for sections of the Hudson Valley, while other eastern areas are expected to get snow showers with little or no accumulation.
Forecasters say the final snow totals for the mid-Hudson Valley depend on the track of the storm and how far inland the storm front travels. Snow is expected to begin falling late this afternoon and continue into Thursday morning before changing to rain.
Conditions are expected to clear by Friday, with temperatures topping 50 degrees for much of New York state over the weekend.
In the Capital Region, the chance of precipitation tonight is 50 percent with new snow accumulation of less than one inch possible, according to the National Weather Service.
On Thursday, there is a chance of rain and snow showers before 10 a.m., then a slight chance of rain showers between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. It will be mostly cloudy, with a high near 43.
It is expected to be mostly sunny locally from Friday through Monday with high temperatures in the upper 40s on Friday and Saturday and highs in the mid 50s on Sunday and Monday.
