It’s a pretty big storm and numbers have been all over the place the last couple days, but as it approaches the Capital Region and the Northeast, snow totals are becoming clearer.
In the higher elevations of Warren, Saratoga, Fulton and Herkimer Counties, as much as two feet of snow could fall between Thursday night and Saturday. West and east of the immediate Albany area could see between a foot and 18 inches. In the immediate Capital Region, it will be less intense – a wintery mix that could bring 4-6 inches.
Snow will begin Thursday night, with precipitation falling throughout the day Friday and into Saturday. The storm’s arrival will vary over certain areas, but parts of the Capital Region could begin seeing snow as soon as 5pm Thursday.
As expected, much of the area (and the entire Northeast) is under a winter advisory of some sort.
As expected, this storm could knock out power to many parts of the area and the state. National Grid says they’re increasing staff to deal with the storm.
We’ve increased staffing and are pre-positioning crews across Central and Eastern New York as we prepare for a severe winter storm with the potential for significant snowfall, ice buildup and high winds beginning Thursday evening and continuing through Saturday afternoon. pic.twitter.com/K4064HpzP2— National Grid US (@nationalgridus) December 15, 2022
