National Weather Service Calls For Snow Saturday

The National Weather Service (NWS)  forecast is calling for snow and a wintry mix in Upstate New York Friday night through Saturday, and depending on where you live accumulations and precipitation will vary.

For most of the area, this storm will be more of a nuisance than anything but it will create some slippery conditions bringing a mix of snow, sleet, and rain.

The Albany area will see less than an inch of accumulation, but areas like Saratoga Springs and Glens Falls could see 1 to 2 inches with higher elevations getting up to 3 inches of accumulation. You can see the snowfall prediction map from the NWS below:
