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

The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a Special Weather Statement effective Wednesday morning. Some icy spots are to be expected. The combination of temperatures below freezing and residual moisture from the melted snowfall has resulted in patchy black ice. Be especially careful on secondary roadways, bridges, overpasses and untreated walkways and parking lots. Motorists are urged to leave plenty of room between neighboring vehicles and to allow a little extra time to reach your destination safely. Scattered snow showers and possible heavier snow squalls will be possible Wednesday afternoon into evening as an arctic cold front moves southward. These snow showers and squalls are expected to produce mainly minor accumulations; however, they could lead to hazardous travel conditions.

Today: Partly sunny. High near 29. Wednesday night, a chance of snow showers, mainly before 8 p.m. Mostly cloudy. Low around 16. Chance of precipitation is 40 percent. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
