Nasty weather for Friday commutes
Last updated: 5:11 p.m., Thursday, January 31, 2008
Friday’s morning commute will usher in a nasty bout of winter weather. That’s when a storm bringing snow, sleet and rain will hit the region, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Evan Heller.
Heller said the low pressure area is moving into this region from Texas and will bring one-tenth of an inch of ice as well.
Highs will be in the mid-30s, Heller said. The precipitation will switch to sleet by the evening, making for another messy commute.
There is a chance of snow sometime after midnight Friday, she said.
Looks like there may be issues with the commute tomorrow. I doubt it will be bad enough for us to go “snow day” but if it is… Also, Monday is a holiday and I could work, or I could not… so if tomorrow doesn’t work out, I will have to go in Monday, but ideally I will just work both days.. Anyway…
Ice, snow could mean nasty Friday commute

The morning commute is expected to be a mess Friday.
The Capital Region will see a light overnight snowfall change to freezing rain by the morning. There may be a little sleet, too, according to the National Weather Service.
The slippery mixture will change to rain by mid-morning Friday. That’s expected to taper off by mid-afternoon.
Though it won’t be a big storm total snow accumulation 1 to 3 inches meteorologist John Quinlan called its timing a “worst-case scenario.”
“Even a very thin layer of freezing rain can cause problems on the roadways,” he said.

We all knew this mild, snow-free weather wouldn’t last long.
A system moving toward the Northeast will dump three to six inches of snow in the Capital Region, and five to 10 inches in Eastern Rensselaer and Columbia counties by the end of the day tomorrow.
The most troublesome part is that the heaviest snow will be falling during the morning rush hour, sometime between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m., said Hugh Johnson, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Albany. Johnson said at times, the snow will be accumulating up to an inch an hour.
“It could be a pretty nasty morning rush,” Johnson said.
Snow could start falling around midnight tonight, and then taper off by early afternoon Monday. However, lighter snow could still be plaguing the Capital Region into Monday night.
Temperatures will drop from the milder weather the area has been experiencing. Monday will reach into the high 20s, with lows in the low 20s.
Due to the reality of our new friend: “Mr Foot of Snow” that decided to show up last night and into this morning we’ve decided to skip coming down the mountain for fear of not being able to get back home later tonight..
@ Midnight last night— snow was blowing all over
3 times I almost didn’t get up a hill and had to shimmy my way up side to side in first gear… pictures coming…
(2-6-2009 entry: Just another quick comment here.. over a year later… this was literally the scariest worst drive EVER EVER EVER)
Looks like I’ll be rejecting tax form designs thru the night if I get snowed in today. Woo boy.
A snowy one-two punch is on the way
Six inches today, heavier accumulations Sunday
By DAVID FILKINS, Staff writer
ALBANY — Capital Region residents will get a taste of snow today, but will have to wait until the weekend for the first heavy snowfall of the year.
As much as six inches will accumulate in some areas starting this afternoon, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Brian Frugis, who said most of the region could be hit with “at least” six inches of snow Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Frugis said the snowfall will begin today sometime between 11 a.m. and noon and will be moderate to heavy at times. The storm is coming from the south, he said, and will result in heavier snowfall south of Albany.
The evening commute could be rough, Frugis said, since the snow won’t start tapering down until 6 p.m.
After a 48-hour break, he said the snow is expected to start up again Saturday night, heavier than today: “It could be much more significant.”
