A few flurries along another cold front Wednesday

Snow showers along a cold front will push through the Finger Lakes this morning. Colder air will work in behind the front this afternoon, but temperatures should not drop much past 0º tonight.
Snow showers along a cold front will push through the Finger Lakes this morning. Colder air will work in behind the front this afternoon, but temperatures should not drop much past 0º tonight.

Just when temperatures started to be a little tolerable, another cold front is pushing through the region, reinforcing our cold air.

This front, thankfully, is a lot weaker than some of our recent, squall producing, arctic blast inducing fronts. For the most part, there are just a few snow showers that accompany this front. As the front moves east, even these will dissipate.

No more than a coating of new snow should fall, with not even that falling for some areas further east.

Temperatures stayed mostly in the teens overnight and may be able to rise a few degrees towards 20º this morning. As the front works east though, colder air will start to filter southeast out of Canada on some occasionally gusty, but generally not overly strong winds.

By sunset tonight, temperatures will be mostly around 10º and will continue to drop off into the overnight.

Some cloud cover will help keep temperatures from falling too far though, with lows generally near or just above 0º.

Thursday looks mostly cloudy as well. There could be a couple more snow showers as a weak clipper system to our west interacts with a stronger storm system that will be moving off the Mid-Atlantic coast.

Friday and especially Saturday morning look colder as high pressure builds in with clear skies and light winds. A more prolonged period of tolerable temperatures will settle in for the start of March, but with the warmer weather comes a few chances for snow through next week.
