The Blizzard of 2015 is unleashing its full fury on New England this Tuesday morning, but will remain well to the east of the Finger Lakes. Still, some snow showersleft over from the first system remain over western New York and Pennsylvania.

The first low has transferred almost all of its energy to the coastal storm and will continue that transition this morning. Any snow showers left over should die out by the early afternoon at the latest.

Most of the Finger Lakes will be dry today as colder air wraps south into the storm. Temperatures will fall a bit this morning, then rise back up to about the temperatures shown on the map early this afternoon before falling again later in the day.

Combined with some gusty winds, it will feel like the single digits most of the day and below zero by this evening.

Temperatures Wednesday morning will be near or just above 0º for most locations, with wind chills as low as -15º.

Wednesday will be sunny, with temperatures climbing back towards 20º before another cold night.

Another shot of snow will come in Thursday night and early Friday with another 2-5″ possible, followed by more cold for the weekend.
