The Nor'easter that is forecast to impact the area late Sunday night through early Tuesday morning will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to much of the Hudson Valley and accumulating snow to points farthest north.

Most of Dutchess should see all rain from the storm, but parts if Greene County could see up to 3 inches of snowfall. Amounts could change depending on the storm track.

All told, Dutchess should see about an inch and a quarter of rainfall through early Tuesday, when the storm winds down.

Farther south, up to 2 inches of rain is forecast during that time period.

The bulk of the rain is currently forecast to fall during the day Monday and into the first half of Monday night.

A High Wind Watch that includes Southern Westchester, but not the rest of the Hudson Valley, is in effect from 1 a.m. Monday to 1 a.m. Tuesday. Winds of 30 to 40 miles per hour with gusts up to 60 mph are likely during that 24-hour period in points south of I-287.

The watch states that downed trees and power lines are likely with numerous power outages possible, according to the National Weather Service. Travel could be difficult, especially on elevated roads and bridges, the weather service warns.

There is a chance of rain starting in the afternoon Sunday, which will be an unseasonably warm day with a high around 50.

Rain becomes likely overnight Sunday into Monday, when steady rain is likely during the day and evening. Tuesday's high temperature will be in the low 40s.

Rain is likely to continue through around 8 a.m. Tuesday. The rest of the day Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a high in the mid 30s.
