Four-Day Weekend Possible In Hudson Valley

Roger Mcclean

"I am monitoring the potential for a four-day weekend in the #HudsonValley," Hudson Valley Meteorologist Ben Noll tweeted on Thursday.

Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, meaning many have off from school or work on Monday. A Tuesday snow day would create an unexpected four-day weekend.

Two Scenarios For Tuesday's Storm

In a Facebook post, Noll says he's tracking two scenarios for Tuesday's storm.

Scenario 1: Storm tracks close to the Hudson Valley. Under this scenario, snow could start early enough on Tuesday to cause a snow day and last long enough to cause a delay on Wednesday.

Scenario 2: Storm tracks farther away from the Hudson Valley. Here, the region would be mostly missed or receive a glancing blow later on Tuesday and/or Tuesday night.
