Low pressure is tracking along the East Coast and intensifying as it continues its northeast progress, paralleling the coast.  Snow has overspread the region and will continue to to fall, heavy at times, this afternoon and into the evening hours.  Temperatures today will remain steady in the lower to mid 30’s in most places, and upper 20’s across the higher terrain.

Steady snow will continue through the evening hours as the storm continues on this track, to a position near the Gulf of Maine by Midnight.  As the storm departs toward the Canadian Maritimes, the snow will taper off after midnight.  Storm total accumulations by early Thanksgiving morning will be heaviest in the Catskills, Taconics, Litchfield Hills, Berkshires and Southern Green Mountains.  In these locations 10-16 inches of snow are possible.  Across the remainder of Interior Southern New England, the Mid and Lower Hudson Valley, The Greater Capital District, along the I-88 corridor, north toward Lake George and into Central Vermont, 7-11 inches of snow is expected.  Heading north and west, toward the Canadian Border and Great Lakes, further away from the storm’s path, 3-7 inches of snow is possible and lower amounts in the Western Mohawk Valley toward Utica  and in the Champlain Valley toward Burlington.  Overnight Lows will be in the 20’s.

On Thanksgiving day the weather will improve with scattered snow showers around, otherwise a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid to upper 30’s.

High pressure will bring us mostly sunny skies on Friday with highs in the lower to mid 30's.

A weak front will be close by for the remainder of the holiday weekend with cloudy periods on Saturday and Sunday with a few flurries possible and highs in the upper 30's to mid 40's.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
