An area of low pressure along the Mid-Atlantic coast will bring some snow to the Finger Lakes region on Wednesday.
The snow will spread north through the morning hours with the heaviest precipitation coming during the afternoon.
Temperatures will play a role in how much snow accumulates, so higher elevations are generally expected to see the higher amounts. Most areas will be near or slightly above freezing during much of the snowfall.
Most of the northern Finger Lakes should see an inch or less of accumulation. Some rain may even mix in at times in the Thruway corridor. An inch or two will fall further south, with the best chance for over 2 inches coming across the Southern Tier and particularly in the higher elevations.
The temperatures should also keep roads in decent shape. Main roads especially should be easily treated and primarily wet. As always, localized variations in road conditions based on elevation, traffic, and treatment plans are expected.
The snow will end early in the evening with clear skies quickly taking over.
Good agreement among the models continues to lend increasing credibility to the idea of a snowy, windy Saturday. Significant travel impacts will be possible, with moderate snow accumulations and plenty of blowing and drifting.
More details on the event Saturday will come throughout the week.
