  • Winds will shift to a more northwesterly direction as the morning goes on. This will disrupt the lake effect and send a spray of snow showers into the Finger Lakes.
  • Once winds settle this evening, the lake snows will again organize into a single band, a bit further southwest than what is show on the radar image to the right.
  • Cayuga, Cortland, northern Tompkins and south/central Onondaga county may see another inch or two of snow tonight form this lake effect.
  • Winds turn south on Saturday, ending any lake effect in the Finger Lakes early on.
  • Temperatures will be well below normal, with highs stuck in the 30s for the foreseeable future.
