REVISED: FRIDAY AFTERNOON FORECAST UPDATE
After consulting the latest data, we've have upped the snow amounts by 1-2" in total by Saturday evening. I feel that 4" will be the low end as this storm spends about 18 hours over Northern N.Y. overnight through Saturday. Falling air pressure within the storm will accelerate our winds after 8 p.m. tonight with gusts possible of 40-45 mph. Blowing of snow may produce very low visibility at times overnight and Saturday morning. Snow will wind down in the afternoon hours.
The elevations of Wyoming County will probably get the most snow, up to 12" possible in THE HIGHEST spots there. The good news for all is that any snow will stick around through next week. Also you all are probably seeing low pressure developing along the Gulf Coast next Wednesday. That will be the one to watch for a late week snowstorm in the Northeast. Could be fun! At least our weather pattern is becoming more conducive for Winter storms rather than mild and wet weather.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
