Local weather forecast
Today's forecast is specific to Catskill, in Greene County:

A Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect for the Greater Capital District, Mohawk and Schoharie valleys, southeast Adirondacks, Taconics and the Mid-Hudson Valley, through 10 a.m., Wed. Wind chill readings may drop to less than -15 or -25. West winds of 10 to 20 mph, with gusts of 30 mph, are possible. A Wind Chill Advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Thurs., Jan. 9 through Tues., Jan. 14. There is a chance of a light wintry mix of sleet and/or freezing rain late Friday into Saturday morning. As warmer air moves in the region Saturday afternoon and night heavy rainfall is possible, which could potentially lead to some flooding. Rainfall amounts are highly uncertain at this time.

Today: Sunny. High near 19. Wind chill values as low as -15. Wednesday night, partly cloudy. Low around 11.

Forecast for the next three days:
Thursday: Sunny. High near 28. Thursday night, a slight chance of snow showers after 1 a.m. The snow could be heavy at times. Increasing clouds. Low around 15.
