Snow And Ice Falls in The Capital Region, New Storm Predicted For Thursday

Drivers across the Capital Region are in for a very tricky commute Tuesday.

Snow and ice arrived in the area overnight, meaning conditions on the roads will be difficult until plows can get them cleared. A couple inches of precipitation are expected to fall in most locations before the storm system moves out. National Grid says it has already put crews on standby to deal with any potential power outages.

AccuWeather forecast:

Tuesday, cloudy and not as cold, with freezing rain turning to plain rain before ending in the early afternoon, high 38.

A snow shower in spots late Tuesday afternoon or evening, partial clearing, brisk and colder again overnight, low 16.

Wednesday, turning mostly sunny with diminishing wind, high 24.

Thursday, cloudy and cold with snow returning by noon, accumulating a coating to an inch by evening, high 24.

Snow will mix with sleet and freezing rain Thursday night before ending as all snow Friday morning, total accumulation 3-6 inches, remaining cloudy the rest of Friday, high 32.

Saturday, partly sunny, brisk and cold, high 26.
