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

A Special Weather Statement is in effect for the greater Capital Region and the Mid-Hudson Valley. Periods of light to occasionally moderate snow will continue for the early morning commute. Temperatures in the teens to mid 20s will allow the snow to stick on untreated surfaces, which may become suddenly slippery. Visibilities will lower under a mile at times in the snow. Snow accumulations will range from a coating to up to an inch in some locations. Motorists should use caution and allow extra time for the early morning commute.

The National Weather Service in Albany has declared a Flood Watch in effect for central New York and western New England, including Columbia, Greene, Albany, Berkshire, Dutchess, Rensselaer, Schoharie and Ulster counties, from Sat., Jan. 11 through Sun., Jan. 12. Temperatures will rise into the upper 40s to lower 50s allowing snow melt to occur across the region. Rainfall amounts will range from three quarters of an inch to an inch from the Capital Region north and west, to one to two inches to the south and east. The rainfall will fall on frozen ground, which will become runoff and may potentially cause street or poor drainage flooding of low-lying areas. The warm temperatures combined with the rainfall may cause ice movement and break up for ice jam flooding on some rivers and streams. Ice jam flooding would have its greatest threat late Saturday afternoon into Sunday.

Today: Light snow likely, mainly before 1 p.m. Cloudy. High near 35. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible. Friday night, a slight chance of rain, snow, and sleet before midnight, then a chance of rain. Cloudy. Low around 33. Chance of precipitation is 50 percent. Little or no snow accumulation expected.
