Clear skies that resulted in cold temperatures this morning will be replaced by clouds and a few snow showers as a ‘clipper’ system to our south tracks east across the Mid Atlantic.

While everyone in the Finger Lakes should cloud up this morning, the best chances for seeing snow will be across the southern reaches of the the Finger Lakes and into the Southern Tier.

The snow is not expected to be heavy or significant, with accumulations of less than an inch.

The warmer temperatures over Ohio (see image) will not quite make it in either, with highs today in the mid and upper 20s. Still, that is quite a bit warmer than where we are starting the day.

A few snow showers may linger through the overnight and into early Thursday morning before departing, leaving us with quiet weather and fairly normal temperatures into the weekend.
