Timing For Snow On Wednesday In Hudson Valley
Hudson Valley Weather believes snow will develop between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Wednesday with snow falling steadily and its heaviest in the early evening on Wednesday.
"Cold air will be in place ahead of this storm, so we'll all start off as snow. However another storm track where a low pressure moving into the Great Lakes will bring enough warm air in the mid layers of the atmosphere to cause the snow to transition to a wintry mix, and then rain (likely between 7pm and 10pm), before tapering off after midnight as the low pressure pushes the precipitation to our northeast," Hudson Valley Weather added.
Snow will change over to sleet and then rain around midnight.
"Temperatures are projected to be in the upper 20s to around 30° when the snow moves in, and should begin to accumulate on all surfaces. In addition, the timing of the snow arrival appears to be late morning. This will cause have impacts on travel, so school cancellations or early releases appear likely on Wednesday," Hudson Valley Weather stated.
