Storm's impact locally most likely not severe
ALBANY The Capital Region will be right on the fringe of a nor’easter heading up the Atlantic Coast, local weather experts said Tuesday night.
“We might get a few inches or it could be a total miss,” said George Maglaras, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Albany.
The storm system is expected to come into the region Wednesday afternoon and evening. An inch of snow is predicted for some parts of the area.
The chance of precipitation from the storm in Schenectady and Albany is 50 percent Wednesday night and early Thursday. The likelihood of any significant snow gradually decreases farther north of Albany, Maglaras said.
The storm was just starting to develop Tuesday and the computer models used by the Weather Service show it trending farther to the east than earlier models indicated, he said, reducing the impact here.
