This lake-enhanced snowfall continues on Monday and even into Monday night, especially with winds going from west-southwesterly to more northwesterly throughout the day. Generally speaking, minor accumulations of an inch or two is certainly possible both during the day, and again overnight on Monday. Any lingering snow that lasts into Tuesday morning will quickly be ending as much drier air builds in for the week ahead. This nickel and dime-like snowfall will lead to some accumulations, depending on where you're located. Most of us could see an inch or two total when all is said and done, with 1-3” possible in the higher elevations, and up to 4” being seen in northern Cortland County by Tuesday morning.
As mentioned above, colder air moves in with high pressure and sticks around for Wednesday and Thursday. We start to warm up a little bit on Friday as this high slides to the east. Generally highs will be in the 30's, with lows in the teens Wednesday and Thursday but bumping into the 20's as clouds increase Friday night.
We're keeping a close eye on next weekend, as a low over the Great Lakes and a low along the Atlantic Coast approach. Right now, the coastal storm is likely to stay well offshore, leaving us with scattered rain and snow showers at best. Stick with us as we watch for possible changes to this throughout the week.
