There’s snow stopping it now

With a Winter Storm Warning and a state of emergency still in effect the Capital Region will continue to see snow fall as the day progresses. The wet, heavy snow has blanketed the Capital Region taking down trees and power lines leaving thousands without power and seeing up to an inch of snow per hour in some areas.

By the time the Nor’easter wraps up you can expect a foot to 16 inches of snow in the Capital Region and North along the Hudson River. Some areas in the Mohawk Valley and Vermont could see up to two feet of snow. The storm should ease up by Wednesday morning but will remain windy throughout the day.

This video from the southern Adirondacks shows how quickly the snow accumulates with some areas seeing 2.5 inches per hour.

Remember with this wet, heavy snow and high winds to avoid travel when possible and take extra time while keeping a safe distance from plows and emergency vehicles.  Also, use caution as the heavy snow can lead to downed trees and power lines.
