I haven’t checked any forecast at all and tonight I got a pleasant surprise. When I finally checked the forecast at 8:30 PM, I saw there was a winter weather advisory issued at 3:04 PM this afternoon. Beginning at 9 PM and continuing until around 6 AM Monday morning… SNOW! 3"-6"/7.6-15cm! Hoping for the greater amount… keeping my shovels… er… fingers crossed! When I checked the radar I see the snow to the south is already approaching Coxsackie and to the southwest it’s at Greenville. Both are less than 20 miles/32 km away. Yes!
Edit: It’s been about 4 hours since posting the above. The snow began falling here a few minutes after 9 o’clock last night. Still coming down, but twice it slowed down to just a gentle light snow. Snowing again a little harder at the moment. So far we’ve received 1.8"/4.5 cm. They said it was supposed to end around 6 AM, but from looking at the weather radar it looks like it will end a couple of hours earlier. The is a lot of rain to the south… PA and New York City are getting that. Guessing at the way the storm is tracking, it looks like @cageycat may have gotten some snow. Looks like the rain may have stayed south of her also. Was this a good guess, Cagey? The storm appeared as a vee with the snow at the nose and upper arm and the rain as the lower arm. Ontario also got snow as it headed past.
I just quickly checked the radar again and it shows the tail end of the storm just over me. Snow should end in a short while - just shy of 5 hours early. I did mention to Donna that it looked like this storm was moving fairly quickly, and that more than likely we would get the lesser of the 3" to 6" /7.6-15cm.
