The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Warren County that details what we’re expected to wake up to Wednesday.
“A few inches of snow may accumulate on the colder grass areas across the higher terrain by daybreak Wednesday,” the outlook states.
According to the NWS forecast, a chance of rain before midnight will shift to a rain/snow mix between midnight and 3 a.m. with a low around 31.
Snow is anticipated until Wednesday afternoon, which brings a high near 42. Scattered snow showers will continue Thursday followed by more rain/snow mix.

“The heaviest snow will fall from the pre-dawn hours through mid to late morning,” per the New York National Weather Service advisory. “Plan on slushy and very slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions will impact the Wednesday morning commute. This will be a heavy, wet snow, and may result in isolated power outages and a few downed tree limbs.”
