As the winds turn northwest tomorrow, the lake effect snow bands off Lake Ontario will migrate south through the region. Because it will be lake effect some heavier snow is possible inside the heart of the bands. It will turn breezy with gusts 25-30mph possible. This further reduces visibility. Any accumulation from the lake snow will be less than 1-2″ as the bands are expected to be progressive.

Friday night drops into the upper single digits to low teens with wind chills sub-zero at times. Chills could reach as low as -5. Saturday looks quite nice with sunshine but an approaching low pressure Sunday brings the likelihood of more precipitation. Freezing rain/sleet are likely along with rain and snow. Conditions could be icy Sunday morning into the early afternoon depending on how long any icy precipitation falls. Please monitor the forecast for updates.
