Snow Timeline For Hudson Valley
Hudson Valley Weather says "we should see wet snow break out across much of the Hudson Valley shortly after sunset on Tuesday."
Snow will start falling between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Tuesday when temps fall into the low or mid-30s, Hudson Valley Weather reports.

Hudson Valley Snowfall Predictions
Hudson Valley Weather predicts a slushy coating on grassy areas and an inch or two on snow for unpaved surfaces well north of I-84.
"Temps have been warm for the first half of November, so snow will struggle to accumulate on pavement, and even unpaved surfaces," Hudson Valley Weather wrote on Facebook. "This will make accumulations even more tricky to predict."
The Catskills and parts of the Hudson Valley with higher evaluation has "the best chance" of 1 to 3 inches of wet snow.
Noll predicts a half-inch to two inches of snow for Western Orange County, west of Middletown, as well as Ulster and Sullivan counties.
He believes a coating to at most an inch, mainly on grass, will fall in central and eastern Orange, Dutchess, and Putnam counties. A coating is forecast for Rockland and Westchester counties.
