Nor’easter may dump a foot or more of snow; ice could be an issue in downstate New York

HUDSON VALLEY – What could be the biggest winter storm in the past few years will be a daylong event that could dump a foot in much of the Hudson Valley.   Downstate areas are likely to see some ice mixing in, which could cause a lot of power outages. 

The storm has been hard to predict because of frequently changing projections on the exact track.  The closer it got, the worse things looked for the New York Metro Area, and especially, adjacent counties to the north and west, where the precipitation will fall mostly as wet snow. 

Accumulations are expected to range from up to eight inches in New York City, with Hudson Valley counties getting up to a foot, or even more in a few places.

The heaviest snow is expected from late afternoon into the evening before gradually ending overnight.

The timing of the storm could mean two days of problems with roads and transportation services.
