Snow squalls and gusty winds are set to combine for periods of near-zero visibility across the region Sunday afternoon, the National Weather Service said.
The line of squalls is to move east across the region starting around noon in the western and southern Adirondacks and extend east through the Lake George, Saratoga region, as the Schoharie Valley and Capital District, forecasters said.
The squalls and winds will cause periods of near-zero visibility, the service said. Winds will also cause blowing in the squalls. A half inch to inch of accumulation during a 15- to 45-minute time period is possible, the service said.
The squalls are to be from noon to 3 p.m. in the western and southern Adirondacks and Mohawk Valley and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Lake George Saratoga region, Schoharie Valley and Capital District, the service said.
"Travel during snow squalls is not recommended, as there is no safe place to be on a highway during a snow squall," the service said in a statement. "Consider delaying travel until after the snow squalls have passed."
