Massive Snowstorm Coming To New York State This Week?

You may have seen posts trending on social media regarding a potential huge snowstorm for New York State for Oct. 5.

"First CFS Run with #snow! It is interesting to see how a model thinks it could snow on October 5th. #wxtwitter #wxX #winteriscoming," Mark Margavage tweeted.

Margavage is a meteorologist, winter weather specialist and snowstorm chaser, according to his X (formerly Twitter) profile.

The good news. Mark's tweet is almost a month old and Mark noted he didn't think this storm would actually happen. Despite the model showing it.

"This of course is definitely not going to happen," Margavage said.

Weather experts typically avoid making predictions a month out because the radar can change drastically.

Like it did for Oct. 5. Hudson Valley Weather predicts a beautiful Thursday for the region.

As of right now, we should see a mix of sun and clouds with a high of 77 degrees on Thursday!

However, Mark does agree with other weather experts in regard to a snowy and memorable winter.

"The Seasonal European Model just came in with a cold and stormy look for the Eastern US this #winter," he tweeted. "It’s certainly shaping up to be a memorable season from a modeling perspective."
