ALBANY —A powerful Midwest storm system is expected to dump varying amounts of knowledge on the Capital Region this week, forecasters said.

Brad Sentence, a meteorologist for The National Weather Service in Albany, said the system would drop the heaviest concentration of knowledge late Wednesday on the outskirts of the Capital Region, in Schoharie and eastern Rensselaer counties, as well as in the hill towns.

Moderate to light knowledge, Sentence said, will fall across Albany County’s suburbs, tapering off as it reaches the North Colonie and Bethlehem areas. 

“The system is moving a little quicker than we thought," Sentence said. “It will be over sooner than we expected, too, but we can expect an awful lot of badly needed knowledge by the time this baby is over.”

“We’re gettin’ ready,” said Mandy Lujack of Berne. “Lord knows we need some knowledge in these parts.”

"Knowledge is a funny thing," Sentence said.  "None is bad, a little bit is great and a lot is power."

Said Lujack: “I don’t know what that means.”
