.SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/...
Widespread moderate to heavy snowfall Christmas Eve night into
A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for late Sunday evening
into Monday afternoon for the western and southern Adirondacks,
Lake George Saratoga, southern Vermont and the northern
Berkshires. A winter weather advisory will likely be needed for
the rest of the forecast area for a moderate snowfall.
The bulk of the accumulations will occur by sunrise Christmas Day.
Total snow accumulation through Monday morning of 6 to 8 inches
are expected across the watch area: western and southern Adirondacks,
Lake George Saratoga, southern Vermont and the northern Berkshires.
A moderate snowfall of 4 to 6 inches is expected across the rest of the
forecast area with the exception of 2 to 4 inches across the
southeast most portion of the forecast into the southern
Dutchess and Litchfield counties where some warmer air works in
aloft resulting in a denser snow.
.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
The next chance of snow arrives Friday night into Saturday, as
models are showing the potential for a complex storm system with a
primary cyclone approaching from the Great Lakes with secondary
cyclogenesis off the east coast. While the coastal storm may be too
far east for significant snowfall, the primary low could still bring
some accumulating snow. So will mention chance of snow either way.
Will continue monitor this potential snow event, as it is still
about a week away.

I like 4 to 6 inches it's a quick mover, also need to watch how far east the lake effect snow makes it way Tuesday, could get lucky and add another couple of inches, either way Xmas and Tuesday look good, bottom drops out by Wednesday
