Low pressure in the mid-Atlantic will move off the coast today and pass well to our south into Thursday with some light snow possible tonight on the northern fringe of the system, especially south and east of Albany. An upper level disturbance then looks to drop out of Canada and the Great Lakes behind the slow moving and rather large storm late Thursday into early Friday, tapping into some Atlantic moisture with a period of light accumulating snow for most of the region. Drier and milder weather will arrive into the upcoming weekend.
