Forecast Discussion:

2:20pm update: steady snow is rapidly moving northeast and will come to an end through about 3pm. Some additional snow showers are possible but then we’ll watch for some mixed showers to develop later this afternoon and evening. Additional snowfall accumulations through 5pm will range from a dusting to perhaps 1-2″ in the most persistent snow. Roads will remain slippery. The morning forecast is below.

It will be a wintry day across the Southern Tier as a low-pressure system will bring us snow from the southwest. As we head into the afternoon, roads will become slick, as the snow begins to fall areawide. The snow will be wet and heavy, with total accumulations around 3-6″, with localized higher amounts in the higher elevations. Snow will change over to rain and a wintry mix as we head into the overnight period. Some pockets of freezing rain can not be ruled out either. Winds will ramp up as well, with gusts nearing 35 MPH for most, with the possibility of higher gusts in higher terrain. Isolated power outages are possible. The precipitation will slowly taper, but a few snow showers before daybreak is possible.

Snow showers will develop on Thursday, but accumulations will be light. Temperatures will fall into the 20s by midday, along with gusty winds nearing 35 MPH. Friday will be quiet with mostly cloudy skies and a slight chance of a few flurries. Highs will be in the low-30s.

The weekend starts off quiet as we will see isolated snow showers and temperatures reaching the mid-30s Saturday. We will see another chance of rain and snow on Sunday, with highs in the upper-30s.

Next week will be a quiet start, with cloudy skies and highs in the low-30s for both Monday and Tuesday.
