A long duration snow event will continue today with light snow initially, becoming steadier later today into tonight and lasting into early Friday. It will also remain very cold with temperatures struggling to get much into the teens, helping contribute to the fluff factor of the snowfall. Additional Atlantic moisture will get fed back into the arctic air mass as a coastal low goes by well offshore tonight. Even colder air then looks to arrive behind the storm to end the week with downright frigid conditions. Another storm then looms for early next week.

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 10 a.m. Friday for the entire region, except the Adirondacks where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect. Snow covered roads and low visibilities due to snow and blowing snow will make for dangerous travel. Wind chill temperatures between 10 below and 25 below zero will produce extremely cold conditions, bringing a risk of hypothermia and frostbite.
