Low Impact Snow

A few streamers of lake effect snow remain in place over the Finger Lakes this morning.

These small bands of snow will continue this morning before decreasing further this afternoon. The snow will probably never quite fully dissipate, though most areas will probably be snow free for the majority of the afternoon.

The snow will be rejuvenated slightly this evening before coming to an end overnight.

Little to no snow accumulation is expected during the daytime hours today. Some roads may be a bit messy this morning, but should improve as the day goes on.

A few places could see another fluffy inch or two overnight tonight, but most areas will see little to no accumulation.

Temperatures will continue to retreat very slowly. Highs today will range from the upper 20s in higher elevations to the low 30s in lower elevations. Few, if any locations will get above the freezing mark today.

Clouds will keep temperatures from falling too far tonight with Wednesday morning lows in the low and mid 20s.

Quiet Conditions

We will transition from clouds to sunshine during the day on Wednesday as high pressure builds in and winds no longer blow off Lake Ontario.

High temperatures Wednesday will be similar to today, though some higher elevations in Central New York will stick in the mid 20s.

Clear skies and calm winds Wednesday night will be favorable for rapid cooling in the evening. Temperatures may dip below zero in Central New York with single digits throughout the western Southern Tier. The typically warmer parts of the immediate Finger Lakes region will remain in the teens.

Some thin clouds will build in on Thursday, filtering some of the sunshine. Light southeast winds and the sun will help temperatures rebound from the cold start with highs around 30.

Clouds will be a bit thicker and temperatures warmer on Friday. Highs will reach the mid and upper 30s. No precipitation is expected.

On Saturday, a coastal system will just clip the East Coast while a second system dives into the Great Lakes. These two may interact with a small response of a few flurries in our area early Saturday.

Most of the daytime hours Saturday will be dry before light snow from the Great Lakes system settles in for the evening. An inch or two could accumulate for a few areas.

Sunday currently looks dry with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the low and mid 30s.
