Parts of the Albany area could see the first snow of the season


Parts of the Capital Region could experience it on Sunday evening, as temperatures drop and rain turns to snow at higher elevations.

Totals in the immediate region will be low, however, as the National Weather Service predicts that the areas bordering the Hudson River Valley – the counties of eastern Albany, northern Saratoga, and western Rensselaer, as well as most of the county of Greene – could see about an inch of snow.

The weather service described all areas just outside Albany as receiving “valley rains,” while parts of the Adirondacks will experience heavier snowfall. Parts of Essex County could see up to six inches of snow in the morning, according to the weather service.

However, some areas of the Capital Region have already seen snow, albeit with little accumulation. The Dyken Pond Environmental Education Center in Rensselaer County on Saturday shared a video to Instagram of snow-capped skies as most of the area received rain.
