National Weather Service Albany

We've had a few instances of October snow in the Hudson Valley in recent years. Nevertheless, it still feels wrong having to dust snow off a pumpkin.

The Hudson Valley will see its first heavy dose of winter weather Thursday morning. Snow and sleet is expected to begin after midnight in Orange County, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). The light wintry precipitation will mix with rain in that part of the Hudson Valley before becoming all rain by noon. Accumulation could reach up to 1 1/2 inches in western parts of orange.

Dutchess and Ulster counties will see light snow Thursday morning before turning into rain in the afternoon. Western parts of Ulster County could see significant accumulation. The NWS Albany's forecast as of Wednesday afternoon predicted up to 6 inches in parts of the county.

We'll have storm updates posted to this page Thursday. You can use our storm center tool below to get the latest closings and delays for the Hudson Valley.
