Weather slowly improves in FLX after more morning snow Friday

Snow showers, gusty winds and well below normal temperatures will make for another raw day on Friday, but Saturday is looking a bit nicer.
Snow showers, gusty winds and well below normal temperatures will make for another raw day on Friday, but Saturday is looking a bit nicer.

Snow showers again dot the radar this morning, mostly near Lake Ontario and over the eastern Finger Lakes and central New York. Like on Thursday, a coating of snow will be possible in some of the heavier flurries, but anything that accumulated will melt by the middle of the day.

Snow showers will taper off this afternoon as some dryer air works in from the west and low pressure to our east pulls away. As  the air mass changes though, gusty winds are likely, especially across the eastern Finger Lakes, where some gusts over 30mph are possible.

Winds will calm this evening, leading to a quiet, clear, calm and cold night. Low temperatures Saturday morning will be in the upper 20s. Morning sunshine should help boost temperatures quickly, topping out near 50º in the afternoon. Some afternoon fair weather clouds will likely pop up, but no precipitation is expected. Winds will be much lighter than on Friday as well.

Sunday will be quite similar to Saturday, only with more afternoon clouds and a small chance of a brief, light shower.

Next week is looking better as well, with less rain and warmer temperatures than previously expected.
