After last weekend's downright unseasonable warm spell, it's almost a relief to see the snow clouds rolling back in. Tonight, the National Weather Service is expecting a few inches of snow across the region, possibly with some sleet mixed in.
Most of the Catskills is under a Winter Weather Advisory. In an alert issued for Delaware and Sullivan Counties, the NWS predicts that snow is expected to begin late on Tuesday night, moving northward from the Poconos in Pennsylvania, and spread into the western Catskills by midnight. The heaviest snow will fall Wednesday morning, with accumulations of two to five inches by mid-day Wednesday.
For Ulster and Greene Counties, the NWS predicts accumulations of three to six inches, with snowfall rates of up to an inch per hour during the prime morning commute time.
As always: Stay safe on the roads, Catskills, and if you get any good snow pictures, send them our way at [email protected].
