Snow, sleet and rain showers coming to St. Lawrence County Saturday

A low pressure system developing off the Jersey Shore is expected to drop rain, sleet and possibly snow on Dutchess County overnight Friday into Saturday, according to meteorologist Christina Speciale of the National Weather Service in Albany.

Most of the accumulation will occur on non-paved surfaces in the valleys, but roads could turn slushy and snow-covered Friday night into Saturday morning, especially if the snow falls heavily.

Snow battled the late-March sun angle during the day on Friday, which kept most highway temperatures above freezing and wet.

The speed limit on I-93 was lowered to 45 miles per hour and state plow trucks were out Saturday morning on the interstate highways. High: 35-40. Wind: E 5-15 miles per hour.

A winter storm warning is in place in areas including northern El Paso County and Teller County until 6 p.m. Saturday.

That dry weather will last through Monday for the Northeast, but an active pattern will keep the threat for rain and perhaps even more snow and ice in the forecast at times later in the week. By late day, those areas may have a few inches of snow, but there will be no real impact on travel.
