A clipper system is diving southeast across Pennsylvania, keeping most of its snow to the south of the Finger Lakes.

Still, a few flurries or even some occasional light snow will be possible this afternoon across the region. Accumulations over New York will be mostly less than an inch, but a couple of inches may fall across Pennsylvania.

Skies will clear behind this system, leaving bring sunshine in place for Wednesday. Temperatures on Wednesday will mostly be in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Much warmer weather will come in for Thursday and Friday as low pressure moves through the Great Lakes into eastern Canada. Temperatures on Thursday should soar into the 60s for most locations, though some parts of the eastern Finger Lakes may ‘only’ reach the upper 50s. The normally warmer locations of the northern Finger Lakes may even reach the upper 60s.

Friday will likely be a bit cooler, but still plenty warm, with 50s and a few 60s. A cold front will come through early Saturday, with highs mostly in the 30s for Easter Weekend.
