An area of low pressure will move across the Mid-Atlantic on Friday, spreading light snow into the southern parts of the Finger Lakes.
This snow will mostly fall during the late morning and afternoon hours. For the most part, accumulations across the Finger Lakes will be minimal, with an inch or less near the lakes themselves. The best chances for two or three inches will be in the higher elevations south of the lakes and across the Southern Tier.
Before the snow moves in, the weather for Thursday will be quiet and sunny, with temperatures rising from chilly morning lows in the single digits into the low and mid 30s. Clouds will increase later today and tonight ahead of this system.
The snow should taper off by Friday evening, but more precipitation is likely this weekend. For a preview of the weekend’s weather, check out my weekly weekend-weather blog on Syracuse.com, or grab a copy of the Finger Lakes Times for my weather column in that newspaper every Thursday.
