Weekend Nor’easter To Graze Albany: Who Will Get Snow?
The Capital Region will be spared from any sizable snow this weekend, but areas to the east will see some accumulation.
This weekend the first big Nor'easter of the season is moving across the region, and while we will see some of its effects here in Albany, any real snow accumulation will be falling to the east in the Berkshires and Southern Vermont.
The National Weather Service is predicting Albany will see a mix of rain and snow throughout the day Saturday into Saturday night, with "little or no accumulation." We will however feel the wind from this storm with gusts up to 26 miles per hour.
Eat of the Capital Region, there is however a Winter Storm Watch in effect for Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont, and parts of those areas could see 6 inches or more of snow while areas closer to Albany like Pittsfield and Bennington may see an inch or two. The further east you go, the higher the snow totals go up with areas like Worcester expecting up to 11 inches! So it looks like we will just miss out on some decent snowfall from the storm.
We didn't have to see the full effects of this one, but it would have been nice to see a little snow in Albany this weekend to get us all in the Christmas spirit. Maybe this one will end up tracking a little further to the west to give us some more snowflakes and a little of that holiday feeling that only some snow can bring.
