Winter Weather Advisory Issued For Parts of Hudson Valley
The Hudson Valley is in for a sloppy morning and evening. A Winter Weather Advisory has led to some closings.
This comes as forecasters warn most residents should see some snow, including Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, Sullivan and Ulster counties.
Hudson Valley Weather predicts a coating to 3 inches for most of the region. Sullivan County and the Lower Hudson Valley could see 2 to 4 inches of snow.
"Wet snow sticking mainly to unpaved surfaces. During heavier burst of snow, roads can become snow-covered and icy," Hudson Valley Weather writes in its forecast on Facebook.
The weather should stick around for the evening commute.
" Snow rates across southern zones are expected to be heavier than northern areas, so areas south of I-84 (as well as higher elevations where it will be colder) have the best chance for higher snow totals, and could lead to snow-covered road," Hudson Valley Weather states.
Hudson Valley Weather believes snow will develop between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. from SW to NE across the region. Snow will taper off from SW to NE between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Wednesday.
A number of school districts including Kingston, Wappingers Falls, Valley Central, Monroe-Woodbury and others closed schools on Wednesday.
