Snow and Gusty Wind on Tuesday - Poor Travel Conditions Expected

A major Nor'easter now developing off the mid Atlantic coast will put eastern New York and western New England on its western side through Tuesday.  Snow will become steadier from SE to NW across the region after midnight and towards daybreak Tuesday with snowfall of varying intensity through Tuesday evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 20-30 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions into Tuesday night. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 4"-10" are expected with higher amounts across western New England.

Red Flag Watch/Warning

A red flag watch means that the conditions are favorable for a brush fire event.

In conditions when the humidity is low and winds have reached an optimal speed, the probability of a brush fire is increased.

If a watch transitions to a warning, conditions are considered ideal for a brush fire that can rapidly spread with wind speeds.  Primarily used for firefighting personnel, these watches and warning can serve as a way to inform and prevent rapidly spreading fire from open burning.
