Hello all! The same old story today with more mild weather & eventually it will turn quite wet again come late today, & especially tonight into Tuesday. Temperatures will slowly dip back into the mid & upper 30s Tuesday afternoon, which should cause the rain to at least mix with, if not change to a bit of wet snow before ending Tuesday night. Little, if any, accumulation will occur for most, but there may be a slushy coating to an inch or two over the high terrain south, especially in Wyoming County. Still a little too warm for most of us to see much if any snow with this storm, though.
Now after a quiet, cool Wednesday, we will warm back up with some rain developing Thursday in advance of a powerful storm that will chill us down & flip any rain showers to some snow during the day Friday with lots of wind to boot. The colder air should deepen, along with quite a bit of moisture in the air should be just what we need to get some accumulating snows & lake snows going around here late Friday into Saturday. That will be a bit strange to see for sure!! Perfect timing though, for what looks to be good odds for a white Christmas if latest indications hold. A little more lake snow MAY fly Sunday right through Christmas Eve, as it stays at least seasonably chilly, but of course this is still a week away, so we'll see if this holds, but it definitely looks promising snow lovers! Hard to say how much, but looks safe to say that at least some, if not most, will be able to say bye-bye grass & hello winter white! Stay tuned.
