Happy Easter, everyone. You know I would not be making a post on a day like today unless I felt it was truly necessary!
But, I wanted to give an update on the snow potential for Monday night.
After a fine day with near-average highs in the low and mid 50s, a noreaster will track up the coast during the nighttime hours. A broad area of snow with intense, hyperlocal bands will spread across our region.
Temperatures will be marginal in the mid 30s, but the intense snowfall rates, especially within the bands, may overcome the temperatures.
By Tuesday morning, snowfall amounts will be highly variable throughout the region. Many areas will probably see just a couple of slushy inches. Some areas could see much more.
While higher elevations have the best shot at seeing significant snow, valley locations are also in play for snowfall amounts over six inches and possibly into the double-digits.
This reminds me of April 16-17, 2007 when a similar (but more intense and longer duration) storm dumped as much as 21″ over parts of the region. It can happen even this late in the year.
I will have more details Monday morning. Enjoy the rest of your Easter Sunday!

I think Drew the lessoned to be learned here in this late season storm…….don’t shoot the messinger! I will be subscribing and making a donation to boot! I enjoy sailing on Cayuga lake. I would love a source to turn to to get wind activity specific to the lake. I think Cornell has such a thing attached to the piling? Happy Easter.
I hesitate to ask about Syracuse around 10pm Monday night when my train leaves for Chicago. It will be coming from nyc.
Happy Holiday to you and yours too.

Below freezing and off and on snow and graupel showers all day today. Not at all excited by forecast snow but our elevation worrisome. Well, that too shall melt. Happy Easter to you and yours.
