Very little has changed from last night’s forecast. The pieces are starting to come together and the weather should get very active over the next 48 hours, especially for areas along the New England coast.

For the Finger Lakes, we are still looking at our primary impact from all of this being some very cold air.

The best chances for precipitation will be Friday evening. Areas further west have a higher chance of seeing steady rain, but some showers should move through most of the Finger Lakes.

Saturday will also have a few showers and flurries, with just a couple more flurries early Sunday. Most places will see no snow accumulation, while a few others may see a dusting.

Temperatures much of Saturday and Sunday will be in the 30s, though temperatures will likely be above 40º early Saturday and may sneak to around 40º on Sunday afternoon.

Keep checking back for updates. This remains a very complex system and if anything changes, I will let you know.
