A few brief bursts of snow will be possible this evening over the northern Finger Lakes.

Areas south of I-90 may see a partial coating, with no accumulations across the Southern Tier.


Temperatures this evening will be in the upper 20s and low 30s. After the front passes through, temperatures will drop into the teens.

    Hi Drew,
    I’m driving to Syracuse/Dewitt tomorrow from Ithaca. Should I be concerned snow?
    Thanks very much!

      No snow worries. Bring your sunglasses along though.
