KINGSTON, N.Y. — A winter storm warning issued by the National Weather Service in Albany predicts snow accumulations of 7 to 13 inches on Tuesday with wind gusts as high at 35 mph.
The warning, which was updated early Monday, predicts a 60% chance of snow beginning at about 4 a.m. Tuesday and continuing through 7 p.m. for all of the Mid-Hudson Valley, eastern Catskills and central and southern Taconics.
The Weather Service said “travel could be very difficult to impossible” and “hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute” with snow falling at rates up to 2 inches per hour late Monday and Tuesday morning.
Skies are likely to remain clear Monday with a high of 44 degrees and “light and variable” winds.
But on Tuesday, according to the Weather Service, the chance of precipitation is 90%.
The forecast does not call for any freezing rain or sleet.
Commuters and those traveling on Tuesday could experience difficulty, with patchy, blowing snow possibly reducing visibility significantly.
