After a couple of days in the southeast, we head up the coast to the capital of New York.
At 1151AM, ET, Albany was reporting a temperature of 19 degrees with overcast skies and some light snow. A weak upper lever wave embedded within a broader upper level trough, and it is producing the light snow seen in waves across the state of New York. The low will get wrapped into deeper cyclonic flow off the Labrador coast and pulled quickly northeastward in the wake of the system.
The light flurry activity will cut off overnight tonight, but there may be a flurry in the morning. In its stead, high pressure will build through the mid-Atlantic and New England, and most of the Friday afternoon in downstate New York will be quite pleasant. Another wave of snow, this time associated with a well organized clipper will begin moving through Canada after forming Friday night over Lake Superior. A strong western Atlantic ridge will force the low northeast and its tailing cold front will be unable to clear the Catskills by the end of the day Saturday. There will be some clouds later in the day for Albany, and the auspice of snow to the northwest, but it should remain dry for Albany.
