Plenty of clouds will be with us this week. There will be an almost daily chance of snow showers or flurries. We’ll also have to keep an eye on a potential area of low pressure for Saturday that could bring a widespread accumulating snowfall.
A weak disturbance is expected to develop tonight in the Ohio Valley and move northeast into the mid-Atlantic region tomorrow. This should begin to touch off some light snow showers by morning. The chance of precipitation is around 40%. A light snow could also develop through the late morning into the afternoon Tuesday as this disturbance moves from the Ohio Valley to our region. Minor accumulations are possible by later in the day. A trace to 1” seems reasonable for many areas, but there could be a region of maybe 1-2” especially near, south and southeast of Binghamton. This area will be a bit closer to the heart of the disturbance. Highs will be in the 20s to near 30. Temperatures into Wednesday morning will be in the teens.
Wednesday through Friday looks mostly gray with only limited breaks of sunshine. Highs will be in the 20s and overnight lows Wednesday into Thursday and Thursday into Friday could drop into the single digits. Some lake effect snow is possible late Wednesday into Thursday for the traditional snow belt north/northeast.
Please read this carefully. By next Saturday, a few of our long range models are indicating a POSSIBLE storm. It is way too early to be specific, or to even be highly confident at this point. There is no guarantee of a storm. It is something I will watch and keep you updated on this week. I will keep a 40% chance of some light snow in the forecast with highs around 31 Saturday.
