A disturbance in the upper atmosphere will pass to our north this evening, causing clouds to increase across the region. Snow showers will develop in the Syracuse and build down to our northern counties late in the night. By morning, snow will extend further south into the Twin Tiers with minor accumulations. Lows will be in the mid 20s. Through the day temperatures will quickly rebound to the low 40s. This will help change snow showers to a mix and light rain showers.
Overnight Monday any rain or snow should taper with lows near 30. High pressure returns Tuesday with fair weather and temperatures soaring into the mid 40s. Some sun is expected, and overall this looks like the best day to get outside.
A storm system will begin strengthening and will move up the east coast Wednesday. Temperatures drop to the 20s Thursday with lows overnight hinting into the single digits. Snow could start late Tuesday night and continue through Wednesday. Because warm air will be pulled from our south, a wintry mix seems possible at this time, especially to the southeast. With this scenario and current atmospheric dynamics, instead of fluffy snow, wetter and heavier snow seems likely. After the system departs, highs will be in the mid 30s Friday with temperatures on either side of 40 to begin the weekend.
