An upper level low that has been pestering the region for days is finally beginning to move away this morning with a few lingering flurries and cloudy skies that will give way to some sunshine this afternoon as high pressure briefly returns. Low pressure in the mid-Atlantic will then pass well to our south late Wednesday into Thursday with some light rain and snow possible late Wednesday into Thursday on the northern fringe of the system, especially south and east of Albany. An upper level disturbance then looks to drop out of Canada behind the slow moving storm into Friday, tapping into some Atlantic moisture with a period of snow possible.
