An area of high pressure located over the southern Great Lakes is slowly sliding eastward this evening. Any clouds and lake effect flurries will subside yielding to partly cloudy skies. It will turn very cold with lows ranging from 2 to 8. Some highs clouds will stream in toward Tuesday morning and eventually skies will turn cloudy. Light snow will develop after about 1pm from west to east before things get messy. As far as snow accumulations, I think a general 1-4” is likely. I think we’ll see 1-3” west of Binghamton and 2-5” east. If the wintry mix develops sooner the totals could be cut down significantly. If the wintry mix develops later that currently forecast the snow totals could increase. Please see the map above for exact details.

Timing/Location of wintry precipitation:
I think the wintry mix should develop after 4pm Tuesday and move east into the evening. Most everyone should be seeing a wintry mix or rain after 8pm. The highest chance of freezing rain and sleet will be in the higher elevations of the Twin Tiers, but everyone is at risk of seeing at least a short period of freezing precipitation. There could be some icy spots in any locations that see prolonged sleet or freezing rain. Please monitor the forecast.

By Wednesday morning things should settle back down, but there could be some early day travel concerns based on the location and duration of freezing precipitation. The chance of rain or snow showers is around 30% but it looks like there may be long stretches of dry time. Highs will be in the mid to upper 30s with much colder air arriving into Thursday morning. Lows will drop to around 10.

Some snow showers are possible early in the day Thursday. The chance of snow is 30%. It will be much colder with highs in the mid to upper teens and lows dropping to around 0 or just below.

Clouds and sun are expected Friday with highs around 23. Parade Day looks dry with partly sunny skies and highs around 35. Partly sunny skies should hang around until Sunday as well with highs around 32. Overnight lows these three days will be in the teens.
