Parts of the Hudson Valley might see the first snowfall of the new year this weekend.

The National Weather Service is currently predicting a chance of snow early Sunday morning for Dutchess, Orange, Ulster, Putnam, Sullivan, Rockland and northern Westchester counties.

Rain is expected Saturday night and the rain might change to snow during the early hours Sunday. The National Weather Service also says there is a 40 percent chance of snow for Ulster, Dutchess, Orange and Sullivan counties Sunday night. Sullivan County also has a 40 percent chance of snow on Monday.

If it does snow, the good news, if you don't want snow, is the National Weather Service believes the region will get less than an inch of snow.

Because the temperature on Saturday into Sunday in the region will be in the mid-thirties there is the potential for the rain to change to snow, Hudson Valley Weather reports.

"Guidance is mixed on this potential right now, so uncertainty is high at this point... but there is a potential scenario where a period of accumulating snow falls Sunday morning across the Hudson Valley," Hudson Valley Weather wrote on Facebook.

The chance of winter weather could lead to closings and delays in the area on Monday. Make sure to check out our Hudson Valley Storm Center for the most up to date closings and delays and download the Hudson Valley Post app for updates on forecasts and more.
