Heavy snow forecast for parts of New York on April Fool’s Day
Parts of New York state are expected to be covered with up to 10 inches of snow Thursday – and it’s no April Fool’s joke.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for central parts of the Empire State, where anywhere between 5 and 10 inches – and even more in the Adirondacks – could fall, Syracuse Post-Standard Reports.
Surveillance will be in effect from Wednesday evening to Thursday evening for most of northern Southern Tier state, from western New York to the Adirondacks.
âMore than 4 inches of snow seems more likely for much of the Finger Lakes region in the New York Thruway corridor, with isolated amounts of 6 inches where the heaviest snow band sets in,â said Binghamton Weather Services Office.
The storm will start as rain before turning to snow as temperatures drop from Wednesday evening to Thursday morning – but it will not last thanks to the strong sun this time of year, according to the report.
The high will be 39 degrees Thursday, with a low of 23 degrees at night, in the region, according to the weather service.
