Bomb Cyclone May Bring 1 Foot of Snow to Hudson Valley, New York
A "bomb cyclone" could bring about a foot of snow to the Hudson Valley. Here's the timing for the next snowstorm.
Early this week, Accuweather said a potential bomb cyclone is expected to wallop the Northeast with heavy snow this weekend.
Hudson Valley Weather agrees parts of the region could see a lot of snow. But does say the storm does have a high "bust" potential.
"That's due to the speed of the 2 interacting features (front and low pressure), and timing their position and how they interact," Hudson Valley Weather wrote on Facebook.
As of now, Hudson Valley Weather believes parts of the region could see up to 12 inches of snow.
"The Mid and Upper Hudson Valley is the area of greatest uncertainty. The timing is CRITICAL to how much snow falls," Hudson Valley Weather adds.
Below is Hudson Valley Weather's snowfall prediction. Timing of the storm is below the predictions.
Hudson Valley Weather believes a small shift in the storm is the difference between 1 inch of snow and 10 inches of snow!
"This forecast will come down to the minor details, and surprises are likely with this event. It's very likely going to be a significant winter storm for the Catskills, and has potential to provide the Hudson Valley with a significant snow as well, but 25 to 50 miles in the shift of the front could mean the difference between 1 inch or 10 inches," Hudson Valley Weather adds.
Hudson Valley Weather believes ran and wet snow will start to fall between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. with rain changing to wet snow between 4 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Snow would taper off between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
