The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for portions of our area with sleet and snow expected to accumulate.

The affected areas could see up to an inch of slushy snow, something we really don't need after last week's devastating blizzard.

Snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to fall in portions of Ulster, Greene and Columbia counties. The affected areas include the Catskills, the Mohawk Valley and the Berkshires.

Most of the snow was expected to spread through the region this morning, changing to sleet and freezing rain today and then change to rain later in the day.

Other areas in the Mid Hudson Valley are in a "Hazardous Weather Outlook" through this evening. A light wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected. Although no major accumulations are in the forecast, the conditions could make driving hazardous, especially in areas where roads are untreated.

While most of us won't see much snow, we can expect rain throughout most of the weekend, which at least will help melt all of that snow that's still piled up outside.
