New York Ag Connection - 03/07/2018

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo urged New Yorkers in the eastern portion of the state to prepare for another Nor'Easter. The National Weather Service has issued Winter Storm Watches and Warnings for the eastern portion of the Southern Tier, Mohawk Valley, North Country, Capital, Mid-Hudson Valley, New York City, and Long Island regions Tuesday night through Thursday morning. Snowfall rates of up to 2 inches per hour are possible. Sustained winds of 15 mph with gusts up to 40 mph in some areas combined with heavy, wet may bring down tree limbs and power lines causing additional power outages. Traveling will be dangerous due to low visibility and slippery road conditions.

As the second storm approaches, the Governor has activated a toll free hotline for New Yorkers to call to get updates on weather, power outage restoration times, and shelters and warming centers in their area. New Yorkers are urged to call 866-697-2434 for assistance. Additionally, the State Emergency Operations Center, remains activated for enhanced monitoring and will increase operations to include all transportation agencies for this upcoming storm.

"With another storm bearing down across New York, we are bolstering our response efforts to keep the roads clear and the power on," Governor Cuomo said. "The state is working hand in glove with local officials to keep resources and personnel in the field and get the job is done. I urge New Yorkers to keep their supplies stocked, stay safe, and stay off the roads as the Nor'easter approaches."

The storm is expected to bring up to 5 to 10 inches of snow in the North Country with up to 12 inches in higher elevations of Hamilton and Essex counties. Central New York, the Mohawk Valley, Capital and Mid-Hudson Valley Regions are forecast to receive 6 to 12 inches of snow, with up to 18 inches forecast for higher elevations in the eastern Catskills. New York City and Long Island could see 8 to 12 inches of snow with less expected for the Twin Forks of Long Island where rain may mix in. Three to 8 inches are possible in these locations. Travel will be difficult due to heavy snow and reduced visibility Wednesday, especially during the evening commute, through Thursday morning.
