Albany, NY - Storms Could Dump More Than 1 Ft. Of Snow On New York
Albany, NY - The National Weather Service has issued winter storm watches or warnings for much of upstate New York, with more than a foot of snow expected in some eastern areas by the weekend.
Forecasters say the snow will begin falling Friday morning in western New York, where winds are expected to gust to 20 to 30 mph in some counties along Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
By late Friday night, the weather service says some areas of eastern New York along the New England border will receive 8 to 12 inches, and possibly more in higher elevations in the Catskills and Hudson Valley.
Forecasters say the heavy snowfall will be produced by the merging of a strong storm coming out of the west meeting a weaker but moisture-laden system approaching from the south.
