Through 18Z Thursday...Rain showers have turned to snow showers
at KSLK and recent radar trends suggest this snow or at least a
mix of rain and snow will continue for the next 2-3 hours. IFR
conditions from visibility restrictions at KSLK have been seen
and will continue until about 21Z when snow moves out of the
area. Otherwise, precipitation has been falling as rainfall as 
the colder air more supportive of snowfall remains over northern
New York. Nevertheless, pockets of light to moderate rainfall 
continue across much of the region which is brining some brief 
and localized MVFR conditions to several terminals. Gusty winds 
have begun to develop in response to the cold front and mixing 
down of stronger winds aloft. By 00Z, all sites will be gusting 
in the 25 to 30 knot range anywhere from 270-310. These gusty 
winds will continue through the overnight hours into Thursday 
morning before gradually diminishing. Upslope flow over the 
Adirondacks will bring some MVFR ceilings to KSLK overnight 
which will mix out around 16Z on Thursday.
