A day that has started off with bright sunny skies could look very different by the afternoon.
The National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement advising Hudson Valley residents to anticipate isolated snow squalls Friday afternoon.
The squalls could reduce visibility to a half mile or less and produce a quick coating of snow, the weather service said.
Skies should still be partly sunny much of the afternoon with highs in the upper 30s, but strong winds will make it feel as low as 20.
New Year's Eve Day will also be partly sunny with a high in the mid-30s and wind-chill values between 20 and 30. There is a slight chance of snow showers, mixing with rain after midnight, then gradually ending, according to the weather service.
New Year's Day on Sunday will be mostly sunny with a high in the low 20s.
