Spring started over a week ago, but – in an appropriate April Fool’s twist – up to a foot of snow was forecast for parts of upstate New York on Thursday.

Heavy, wet snow could cause power outages in parts of northern parts of the country, the Mohawk Valley and central New York City, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday. Precipitation was expected to start late Wednesday night and continue throughout the day Thursday, sometimes at a rate of an inch per hour.

“Although we have seen warmer weather recently, it is clear that the winter is not over with us just yet as another snowstorm is about to affect much of New York,” said Cuomo. “New Yorkers can rest assured that state agencies are fully prepared to support local partners with any resources they may need and we will monitor the response of utility companies to ensure power outages are met. processed quickly. “

There is also a risk of rain and light snow in the Long Island, Hudson Valley and Capital areas, Cuomo said.

Winter storm warnings were issued for locations in the Mohawk Valley, central New York and northern areas of the country until Friday morning.
