A weakening low pressure system brought some light snow to eastern New York and western New England during the early to mid morning hours of March 7, 2018. Meanwhile, a Nor'easter strengthened rapidly along the Atlantic Coast, which resulted in increasing snow intensity during the afternoon and evening hours. Heavy snow bands rotated northeastward and stalled across portions of the Mid- Hudson Valley, Taconics, and western New England, resulting in one to three feet of accumulation by the morning of March 8. West of the heaviest bands, 8 to 12 inches of snow accumulated across the Capital District. This event was the second major winter storm in less than a week.
