The nor'easter producing wind, rain and above normal tides to the coastal areas is spreading accumulating snow over part of the Hudson Valley and heavy snow to the Catskills, Berkshires and Green Mountains.

The region will be on a strengthening storm's western and colder side Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night with dry air hovering to the north and west.

A swath of dry air to the west is likely to create a sharp northwestern edge to the accumulating snow with the best chance for a half a foot of snow over the Catskills to perhaps the Berkshires. As a result people traveling southward on the Thruway and eastward on the Mass. Turnpike should expect poor visibility and slippery roads in some locations.

Because of the wet, clinging nature of the snow and locally gusty wind, some trees and tree limbs can come down, causing sporadic power outages.

Snow is forecast to fall as far south as New York City for a time.

In the Albany area, it could snow long enough, heavy enough to bring a coating to an inch or two, especially on grassy and elevated surfaces.

Cold air will continue to drill into the region on gusty northerly winds into Thursday. AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will be in the teens at times.

A major warmup is in store for the weekend.
